Facebook movie to star Jesse Eisenberg

First Battleship, now this: The story of social-media maven Mark Zuckerberg is getting the cinematic treatment, and I have to admit that the talent behind it looks good. David Fincher may have made a misstep with Benjamin Button, but his previous film, Zodiac, was among the best of its year, and Fight Club and Se7en aren't chopped liver, either. Meanwhile, West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin is writing the script, and Adventureland star Jesse Eisenberg will play Zuckerberg. Could actually turn out well. Prediction: huge marketing campaign on Facebook. (Thanks to Steven for the news.)
