David Fincher and Columbia Pictures revealed the lead cast for “The Social Network,” new Fincher’s movie – Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield.
Eisenberg (“Adventureland,” “Zombieland”) will play Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Timberlake will play Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder who became Facebook’s founding president.
Garfield (“Red Riding Trilogy,” “Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”) will star as Eduardo Saverin, the Facebook co-founder who fell out with Zuckerberg as the social network became a financial juggernaut.
Fincher (”Se7en,” “Zodiac,” “Panic Room,” “Fight Club,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button“) will direct from the script by Aaron Sorkin.
The film will focus on the evolution of Facebook from its 2004 creation on the Harvard dorm where Mark Zuckerberg and his roommates created the immensely-popular social networking website with more than 200 million members.
Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and Cean Chaffin will produce. Kevin Spacey is executive producer.
Production will begin next month in Boston and then move to Los Angeles.
