"The Social Network"
Columbia Pictures and director David Fincher have cast Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield in The Social Network, the drama about the formation of Facebook written by Aaron Sorkin.
Eisenberg will play Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg; Timberlake will play Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder who became Facebook's founding president; and Andrew Garfield will play Eduardo Saverin, the Facebook co-founder who fell out with Zuckerberg over money.
Production will begin next month in Boston and then move to Los Angeles.
Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and Cean Chaffin will produce. Kevin Spacey is executive producer. Via Comingsoon
If this script was in the hands of anyone else, I would have been skeptical. Now, I'm just looking forward to it.
