First there was Facebook the social networking phenomenon, now there’s Facebook: The Movie, directed by David Fincher and produced by Kevin Spacey.
The full-length 'Social Network' trailer was released yesterday.
As well as 'Fight Club' Fincher also directed 'Se7en', 'Zodiac' and was Oscar-nominated for 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'.
'The Social Network' is about the founding of Facebook. One of its taglines is “You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies” and the film looks at the various legal challenges Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has faced with former colleagues claiming that he stole the idea from them.
The film cast includes Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg and Justin Timberlake as Facebook president Sean Parker.
Looking at greed, obsession, sex and all things Facebook the movie was written by Aaron Sorkin and adapted from Ben Mezrich's 2009 book 'The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding Of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal'.
'The Social Network', produced by Kevin Spacey, is distributed by Columbia Pictures and is set for an October 1, 2010 release.
Spacey has said that the film “is probably going to be a lot funnier than people might expect it to be."
There is already a site dedicated to making Twitter The Movie.
