Justin Timberlake will be brining sexy back to Facebook… the movie. According to Variety, Columbia Pictures has signed up the main cast for “The Social Network,” the Aaron Sorkin-scripted drama about the formation of Facebook.

Variety says Jesse Eisenberg is slated to play founder Mark Zuckerberg, Justin Timberlake will play Sean Parker, the Napster co-founder who became Facebook’s founding president, and Andrew Garfield will play Eduardo Saverin, the Facebook co-founder who fell out with Zuckerberg as the social network became a financial juggernaut.

The movie will focus on the development of Facebook in 2004 on the Harvard campus and how it’s overnight success changed the lives of the people who created it.

Production will start next month in Boston and Los Angeles

It begs the question though, is it ok for the stars to Twitter about it?
