Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield are reportedly set to star in a highly anticipated upcoming film charting the rise of Facebook from Harvard dorm room project to today’s multibillion-dollar force.
Hollywood blog ScriptShadow, which was the first to obtain a leaked copy of the film’s 162-page script, now reports that the cast of The Social Network has been bedded down.
Producer Kevin Spacey, director David Fincher (Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and writer Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) have settled on Eisenberg (Adventureland) to play Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Timberlake to play Napster founder Sean Parker and Garfield (The Other Boleyn Girl) to play early Facebook employee Eduardo Saverin.
A few other sites are reporting this too. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
