FX lands ‘The Social Network,’ ‘Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps’

FX “likes” “The Social Network” — and agrees that “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” is good.

(See what I did there? A reference to Facebook’s “like” function, and a throwback to the original “Wall Street’s” “greed is good” catch phrase? And see how I’m explaining the lede because, honestly, I’m terrible?)

The cabler has picked up the broadcast rights to both movies. “The Social Network” comes from Sony, while “Wall Street” comes from sister 20th Century Fox.

FX has been aggressive in the movie-buying game this year (as have rivals USA and Turner). Among the pics FX picked up this summer: “Iron Man 2,” “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” “Shrek Forever After,” “Date Night,” “The Karate Kid” and “How To Train Your Dragon.”
