However, co-founder Eduardo Saverin fell out with Zuckerberg over money, leading him to file lawsuit against Zuckerberg.
Jesse Eisenberg plays Zuckerberg, while Andrew Garfield is tapped to portray Saverin. Justin Timberlake is additionally cast as Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder who became Facebook's founding president. Other cast members include Rashida Jones, Rooney Mara, and Brenda Song.
Directed by David Fincher and Thomas Schlamme, this drama movie is slated for October 1 release in the U.S.
