Lights, Camera…Mark Zuckerberg?

Could Facebook and all its glory become a blockbuster hit? Columbia Pictures thinks so.

The Social Network, yes that’s the actual name of the movie and yes it’s real, is currently in production. Again, this is not a joke. Acclaimed director David Fincher and screen writer Aaron Sorkin have developed the script and have lined up a cast which includes everyone’s favourite ‘Nsync member, Justin Timberlake.

This is how Entertainment Weekly describes the film:

The Social Network
By Aaron Sorkin
What it’s about:
Chronicles Mark Zuckerberg’s complicated journey towards creating Facebook. Sorkin depicts both the founder’s motivations for starting the largest social network in the world and the human casualties that came with his profound success.
What it’s like: The fascinating biographical elements of Shattered Glass meets the courtroom drama of Kramer vs. Kramer, without the tears. Sorkin cuts between Zuckerberg’s heated depositions with his former Harvard colleagues who claimed he stole Facebook from them and the chronological retelling of the company’s trip to becoming a billion-dollar enterprise.
Status: In production for Sony Pictures. Jesse Eisenberg plays Zuckerberg while Justin Timberlake portrays Sean Parker, one of the founders of Napster and Zuckerberg’s idol. David Fincher is directing.

The film is set to be released in October and Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is working on the score. It’s most likely to be pretty dark. Yet I’m excited to hear the soundtrack and see the movie.

  1. I would go see this movie, but I am a little apprehensive about watching Justin Timberlake, who can’t act, “act.” But other than that, it sounds like a really interesting movie, and I will look out for it. Thanks for the heads up.
