And now we get word that the Facebook movie -- the movie that will be about the origins of the online social-networking juggernaut -- will be doing at least some of its filming in Baltimore.

Mind you, there's really no Baltimore connection with the founding of Facebook, as far as I know.

But the filmmakers, according to the Sun's movie critic Michael Sragow, decided that the Johns Hopkins University campus could fill in for Harvard, where Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg attended when he and some buddies started the online site.

This, of course, is a nice win for the Maryland film industry.

I'm just waiting for a Maryland startup to make it big enough so that Hollywood makes a movie about it.

Come on, Hollywood.... Is the success of Advertising.com or Bill Me Later not sexy enough for moviegoers? :-)
