facebook The Social Network Cast Confirmed

Well it was just a little over two weeks ago that Screen Rant reported on the casting rumors for the David Fincher/Kevin Spacey project about the founding of Facebook called The Social Network. It has now been confirmed that Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland) will play Harvard geek turned Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg; Justin Timberlake (Alpha Dog) will be the former Napster co-founder and Facebook President Sean Parker while Andrew Garfield (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) is going to be Zuckerberg ‘s Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin.

All three will bring life to the highly acclaimed Aaron Sorkin script which is being produced by Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and Cean Chaffin. Kevin Spacey, who has been pushing this project through the Hollywood fast track, will perform executive producer duties. Production on the $45 million dollar film starts October in Boston and then on to Los Angeles.

The Social Network has gotten plenty of attention over the past couple of months. We waited 10 years for a new Superman movie but a film about Facebook took less than one summer to come to fruition. I’ve never seen such a thing for any movie. I sure hope this thing lives up to all the hype because $45 million is a heck of a lot of money for a drama about the creation of an online service.

Sorkin’s story spins a tale of money, fame, sex, deception and success,your basic Hollywood soap opera, and follows Zuckerberg and Saverin’s rise to fame from a couple of Harvard students in 2004 running a social site for other students allowing them to rate the hotness of campus girls to the 300 million worldwide users they have today.

So, this news falls right into place with the rumors we heard a couple weeks back. Only thing we are missing now is a love interest and a release date. If all holds true, we should see both in the next couple of weeks. One thing is for sure, over the next few months we are going to see a lot of Facebook ads shamelessly promoting The Social Network.

What do you think about the newly appointed cast of The Social Network?

No release date has been set at this time.

  1. Ogb, you’ve admitted you have reading difficulties (that’s the first step btw) so why should I waste my time trying to explain myself?
    Ok all answer a few questions for Tweeb’s sake…
    ^
    “So you’re saying that all of my family, friends and my friends’ families that use facebook/myspace are close minded sheep?”
    (Nope never said that.)
    ^
    “Let me ask you this, did your company check your profile when they hired you?”
    (Nope I started out with the company before the internet boom and now I’m up high enough that I don’t have to worry about being told to get a Facebook account,,,)
    How’s the popcorn Tweeb? ;-)

  2. Salt please?

  3. Making fun of my for not understanding your mistake-ridden writing? Hmmm… I hope you see the irony in that.

    Actually, that’s EXACTLY what you’re saying about my friends/family. Read your comments, you’re insulting those of us that use facebook.

    Does your company screen people’s facebooks now? If they hire someone new, do they check their facebook profiles?

  4. Ogb, resorting to the level of a spelling nazi? :-D
    Read your last post. ;-)
    Irony, your soaking in it,,, ;-)
    ^
    I never insulted anyone using facebook in this debate. If I have copy and paste it,,,
    Show me the money!
    ^
    I work for a company that has no interest in what I say or do online. And that’s how it will stay. Its none of their business.
    ^
    So Ogb you have no problems with employers using social sites to check up what you do online, your personal interests friends, other information ???

  5. Can’t believe I’m explaining this to a grown man

    You asked if I was having difficulties reading your writing. I jokingly said yes because your grammar is so bad. You then try to make fun of me for not understanding your horrible grammar. Keep up buddy.

    Yes you did insult facebook/myspace users by saying that YOU “know” the big brother is watching and therefore you’re more aware than the rest of us ignorant people. You also called me a sheep because I don’t believe big brother is gathering information via facebook. My friends don’t believe it. My family doesn’t believe it. Yes it’s a possibility but you act as if you have proof (which you don’t) and we’re just too close minded to see it. That’s what you’re saying. You’re also implying a bunch more insults with these theories you’re throwing around. “Throw enough mud at the wall and some of it will stick”.

    How do you know your company has no interested in what you do online? Maybe they’re hiding it and spying on you secretly? Isn’t that your whole theory? And you don’t think their opinion of you would be altered even a little bit having read what you write online? Think about it.

    Of course I have a problem with it. My company doesn’t do it. I read up on the subject a bit and changed all my privacy settings. I also have a problem with people like you, spreading these claims without actual proof.

  6. Ogb, your just not reading what I’m typing bro and I’m done with your idiocy,,,

    If your insulted by being called a sheeple I couldn’t give a crap…

    How do I know my company isn’t spying on me, I’m one of the owners,,,

    Have a blast using Twitter and selling homes.
    That’s it for tonight Tweeb, lol, :-D

  7. You guys are ridiculous. ogb calm down brother, I never took 790 to mean he was better than us. In fact I got more tongue in cheek from him than anything else (in a non-gay way)

    BTW, I enjoy being a sheep.I never have to think for myself, I’m warm in the winter, always a soft place to lay my head and I help people get to sleep, which makes me feel good in my heart.

    tweeb – I’m going Bigfoot hunting; wanna grab your aluminum foil hat and join me?

  8. @ogb and 790

    Get a room, will ya?

    Time to drop it, please. You guys don’t get along, fine – try to ignore each other and keep this a pleasant place for everyone else.

    Thanks,

    Vic

  9. So instead of trying to explain to me what you mean you call me an idiot and leave…bravo

    Of course you don’t give a crap, you’re a rude, insulting person.

    Wow, I would pay good money to see what kind of company you run. Probably just made it up…remember, selling your things on ebay is not a “business” :)

    I don’t use Twitter and I don’t sell real estate. Good try at having the last word though. A co-owner of a company hurling insults at me? Should I be honored?

    Got it Paul, I’ll stop

    His implications are clear to me based on his previous posts. But I’ll stop for the sake of staying on subject blah blah…okay I’ll stop because it’s a loose loose situation for me. I win, I beat a looney. I loose, I got beat by a looney.

  10. @Paul- I’ve got my aluminum foil hat and packed a spare. Let’s go!
