Facebook on film – The Social Network

A Social Network

Columbia Pictures is making Facebook into a movie. Named “The Social Network”, the film follows Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Facebook from his dorm room through to the empire the platform has become today.
 
Based on the book “The Accidental Billionaires” by Ben Mezrich, the film is the ‘unofficial story’ and paints Zuckerberg in a poor light. The movie has also gathered an impressive production team, Fight-Club director David Fincher and West Wing writer Aaron Sorkin penning the script and has bumped another big movie off the production schedule.
 
And who will be playing Zuckerberg? Jesse Eisenberg, a soon to be 27-year-old actor who so far hasn’t had much international success yet.. Eisenberg’s face is featured in the official poster for The Social Network with the tag line “You don’t get to 500 Million Friends without making a few enemies” speaking to the criticism Zuckerberg has faced over changes to Facebook since its creation.
 
If you would like to know more, you can visit the official site of The Social Network where you can also watch the trailer.

Editor in Chief at here SMNZ, I have a passion for social and digital media. When not writing and managing SMNZ I am the Head of Innovation at TAG The Agency, a digital ad agency and the Head of Sales and Marketing for End-Game, a software development agency. I'm also involved with a number of startups and I am always keen to support those that are bold enough to give things a go. Start something, better to try than to live wondering what if...

    Eisenberg has had some pretty good international success: Adventureland and Zombieland are two that come to mind.

    Would definitely recommend people read The Accidental Billionaires, more than anything its just a really good book. Story and atmosphere, and it took a real life event which has been critical to global culture, and made it fun to read.

    Well that's interesting, never heard of Eisenberg before this. Interesting how the two movies that he's famous for both end in "land" Haha. As for the book I might have to add it to my reading list…

    And when will he shut down the page? Does it have to follow the same amount of complaints? Its hard to get a page to be removed on Facebook.

    This should be an interesting movie because, personally i think this will make people understand the zuck better, or will further put a dent into his name.
