facebook Facebook Movie Justin Timberlake Set Pic

What man under 30 has the stones to rock a black blazer over a black t-shirt?  An internet mogul.  This ain’t news to Justin Timberlake.  Merely news to us, courtesy of The Daily Mail.  What else is up with the coming Facebook movie (other than Timberkale perfectly embodying the “I’ll take your money, but I’ll never play by your rules” ethos), you ask?

Well, it’s called The Social Network and it’s being directed by David Fincher, who helmed Seven, Fight Club, The Game and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.  Today, we have the first official set pic from the film, featuring Timberlake embodying the look of the aforementioned mogul.

The Social Network is adapted from the book The Accidental Billionaires written by Ben Mezrich of Bringing Down the House fame. The screenplay was written by Aaron Sorkin, who created The West Wing and wrote A Few Good Men.  The film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Timberlake and Brenda Song.  Eisenberg will be playing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and previously appeared in Zombieland and The Squid and the Whale.  JTim provoked Prince into yelling, “sexy never left!” at an Emmy party and will be playing Napster co-founder Sean Parker.  Song was seen in College Road Trip.  Here’s a synopsis of The Social Network:

Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg were Harvard undergraduates and best friends–outsiders at a school filled with polished prep-school grads and long-time legacies…One lonely night, Mark hacked into the university’s computer system, creating a ratable database of all the female students on campus–and subsequently crashing the university’s servers and nearly getting himself kicked out of school. In that moment, in his Harvard dorm room, the framework for Facebook was born.

What followed–a real-life adventure filled with slick venture capitalists, stunning women, and six-foot-five-inch identical-twin Olympic rowers–makes for one of the most entertaining and compelling stories of fame and fortune. Before long, Eduardo’s and Mark’s different ideas about Facebook created in their relationship faint cracks, which soon spiraled into out-and-out warfare. While Facebook succeeded by bringing people together, its very success tore two best friends apart.

And here is what Timberlake looks like playing Sean Parker:

“Be a good actor, be a good actor, be a good actor…”

Kevin Spacey is listed as one of the producers and the film will be distributed by Columbia Pictures.  Spacey appeared in 21, the film adaptation of Bringing Down the House and now that I think about it, The Social Network sounds like a rehashing of that movie, with pretty ladies replacing both millions of dollars and stone-faced pit bosses.

Think this new flick based on a Mezrich book will be better than the old one?

The Social Network will help us waste even more time in 2010.

  1. Its weird to see Justin’s hair like that. It kind of reminds me of his early days of Nsync. So, is Myspace and Twitter going to be next in line to get movies? Whatever, can they really be that interesting of stories?

  2. I liked him in Alpha Dog and he does great stuff in the SNL skits. I think he will do well.

  3. This movie will be bigger than Ishtar.

  4. What is the point of this movie? Is it really woth spending millions of dollars on?

    David Fincher, genius that you are, shame on you!

  5. Ok so I see Facebook movie and I just shake my head. I actually read about it and see its being directed by Fincher whos a GREAT director and then I start thinking that it could be special. Tack on the talented Eisenburg and I think he could have a hit.

  6. This film is a genius way to expose the masses to Facebook. Its a huge advertising scam.
    Half the country has no idea what Facebook even is, bring in the fluff no talent Timberlake and you’ve captured the fly over state demo as well as the 60 and over crowd.
    (Warning)
    This film could also be used as a form of sensory overload torture…
    ^
    The facebook film is truly evil and should be avoided,,, :-)

  7. The fact Fincher is directing this makes me nod peacefully. The fact it's about FACEBOOK makes me shiver hopelessly.
