Variety has confirmed a rumor floated by the Scriptshadow blog earlier this month: Columbia Pictures and director David Fincher have set the core cast for the so-called Facebook movie, The Social Network.
Eisenberg will play Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg; Timberlake will play Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder who became Facebook’s founding president; and Garfield will play Eduardo Saverin, the Facebook co-founder who fell out with Zuckerberg over money.
Aaron Sorkin wrote the drama based on the book by Ben Mezrich, The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal.
Production will begin next month in Boston and then move to Los Angeles.
