The Social Network – First Poster

They’re making a movie about Facebook?! No thanks. It’s directed by David Fincher! Oh well that changes things. Yes indeed, the man behind Se7en, Zodiac and Fight Club is the very one responsible for making The Social Network come to life. So what’s it going to be like? Well if the first poster is anything to go by it might be a bit wordy.

The film charts the early days of Facebook, and focuses predominately on co-founder Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg). The plot is loosely based on Ben Mezrich‘s book The Accidential Billionaires and is “A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal.”

Ordinarily it’s not something that would capture my interest but Fincher’s involvement, and the inclusion of Eisenberg (who I feel is a genuinelly good young actor) has me intrigued. Oh and did I mention that Aaron “West Wing” Sorkin wrote the screenplay?

The movie is out this October.
