Facebook. The movie.

If you're reading this post, chances are you have a Facebook profile.

So, you'll be keen to know the upcoming film, The Social Network, is all about the founding of the social networking website Facebook. The film features an ensemble cast, which includes Jesse Eisenberg (as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg), Justin Timberlake (yep, that JT), and Rashida Jones.

Written by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing), The Social Network was adapted from Ben Mezrich's 2009 nonfiction novel The Accidental Billionaires.

Interestingly, none of the Facebook staff or employees, including founder Zuckerberg, were involved with the project. One of the co-founders, Eduardo Saverin, was a consultant for Mezrich's story, though. The film is set for a US release date of early October 2010; no Aussie release date yet.

The movie has already won early acclaim from critics.
