The movie about Facebook that is being directed by David Fincher and published by Columbia Pictures is slated to hit theaters on October 15, 2010. The movie was written by Aaron Sorkin and stars Jesse Eisenberg (pictured), Justin Timberlake, Joe Mazzello, and Andrew Garfield. Eisenberg will be playing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Justin Timberlake will be playing Napster co-founder and former Facebook advisor Sean Parker. Andrew Garfield is playing Eduardo Saverin, a Facebook co-founder who ended up quitting as a disagreement with Zuckerberg over money.
I haven’t yet read the book that the movie is based on, but I think it would be interesting if they also include the three people that Zuckerberg supposedly stole code from: Tyler Winklevoss, Cameron Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra. Supposedly those three individuals made $65 million as part of a settlement with their company ConnectU and Facebook this past February.
