Facebook, the Movie: Computer Geek as Arch-Villain
As ominous, melodramatic music plays in the background, a series of words flash on the screen: PUNK ... GENIUS ... PROPHET ... TRAITOR ... BILLIONAIRE.
Snippets of dialogue are heard -- "We don't know what it can be, we don't know what it will be. We know that it is cool." Then the screen resolves on the face of actor Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Zuckerberg.
Earlier this month at a tech conference, the Facebook CEO said, "I just wished that nobody made a movie of me while I was still alive."
The Social Network is directed by David Fincher (Fight Club). No word yet on who plays Agent Clarice Starling.
