Justin Timberlake goes geek to star in Facebook film

Thursday September 24, 2009

Pop icon Justin Timberlake is preparing to step in front of the camera to make the transition from music to acting once again.

Having already tried his luck on the big screen in films such as Alpha Dog and The Love Guru, the Sexyback singer is now tipped to play supergeek Sean Parker, who became Facebook's founding president.

The Social Network,
to be shot by Benjamin Button director David Fincher, will relate the phenomenal success of the social networking site.

It will take cinema-goers on a journey from the application's humble beginnings in a Harvard University dorm room to it's global domination today.  

The new flick is based on Ben Mezrich's book, The Accidental Billionaires: Sex, Money, Betrayal and the founding of Facebook.
