"The Social Network" will keep a scene involving bare breasts and cocaine. According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), the said raunchy sequence set at a wild party will not be cut despite the movie's PG-13 rating.
The scene will see Justin Timberlake as Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder who became Facebook's founding president, delivering a speech at a party while two young women offer lines of cocaine from naked breasts. A source told the Times that the scene was mostly made up, but producer Scott Rudin previously worried the scene would jeopardize the PG-13 rating.
Matthew Hiltzik, a rep for Parker, declined to comment on the decision. Meanwhile, a Facebook spokesman Larry Yu seemed to be not bothered with the scene, telling THR "Maybe the movie is a sign that Facebook has become meaningful to people, even if the movie is fiction. What the movie may or may not contain is not what we're focused on. What matters more is building a useful, innovative service that people enjoy using to connect and share."
"The Social Network" is scripted by Aaron Sorkin based on court documents and journalist Ben Mezrich's "The Accidental Billionaires", a partially fictionalized account of Facebook's early days. The film will focus on the drama behind the Harvard dorm room creation of the popular social networking site by Mark Zuckerberg and his roommates.
In addition to Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg is cast as Mark Zuckerberg, while Andrew Garfield portrays Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin, who fell out with Zuckerberg over money. David Fincher, the man behind "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", serves behind the cameras for the upcoming drama, which is set for October 1 U.S. release.
