The Facebook Movie

I had heard mutterings regarding a film about Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg starring Justin Timberlake but nothing concrete was established. Then today I came across this post on fellow pop culture blog, Mediacation. It looks like the Facebook film is truly on – in fact considering that the trailer has already been made it would be safe to say that it is more than on. The film is aptly called The Social Network and is about the rags to riches story of social media’s first wunderkid. The cast ensemble consists of Jesse Eisenberg playing Mark Zuckerberg, Justin Timberlake playing Sean Parker, Napster co-founder and Facebook founding president, Andrew Garfield playing Eduardo Saverin, the founder they fell out with as well as Rashida Jones. The Social Network has serious talent attached to it; the director is Oscar winning, David Fincher who brought us The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and the producers are Hollywood’s big time producer Scott Rudin who has worked on numerous hits such as Clueless, First Wives Club, The Queen and Notes on a Scandal., Michael Deluca  who worked on The Love Guru and 21 as well as Kevin Spacey who really needs no introduction. The trailer does not give too much away but it kind of has a dark and moody feel to it with a slice of intruige.

The Social Network hits the US in October.
