A movie coming this October delves into the dirty laundry of Facebook founders Mark Zuckerberg and company. The Social Network from director David Fincher (Fight Club) is being described as dark, which seems to fit with the latest announcement that NIN’s Trent Reznor will be scoring the soundtrack.
Jesse Eisenberg stars as Zuckerberg, and Justin Timberlake plays Napster founder Sean Parker.
Aaron Sorkin wrote the screenplay from Ben Mezrich’s 2009 book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding Of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal. Kevin Spacey is on board as a producer.
The film is distributed by Columbia Pictures and is set for an October 1, 2010 release.
