Facebook movie chugs along

David Fincher's follow-up to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a bit less whimsical and much more grounded in reality. A glorification (and likely stylized) look at the creation of what we now know as Facebook is most definitely chugging along at a fast rate, and the rumored $47 million dollar movie will star a few notables like Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake.

In case you haven't caught wind of any news about this film, it's called The Social Network.

Based on a book by Ben Mezrich called The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal and adapted by none other than The West Wing's Aaron Sorkin, this interesting movie set in modern times is shaping up to be a pretty darn exciting thing to look out for.

It will cover the happenings that revolved around the creation of the aforementioned social networking site, as well as the exploits that Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg were involved in. Hey, they're two kids who wanted to get laid. Now they're on top of the world.

You can read more about the film's premise in the source of this news piece: Slashfilm.
