Facebook, the social networking giant, is hitting the big screen – but it’s not the story of some young Americans’ drunken escapades. The proposed film, tentatively titled The Social Network, adapts Ben Mezrich’s new book, The Accidental Billionaires, which documents the Web site’s founding by Harvard students in 2004.

David Fincher, who directed Brad Pitt in last year’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, is attached to the project, Variety reports. He joins West Wing scribe Aaron Sorkin and producer Kevin Spacey. The Tech site CNET’s The Social blog also reports that Michael Cera and Shia LaBeouf are among those being sought to play founder and current CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
