BREAKING! Tech isn't our normal beat but we couldn't resist this one ;-) Here's something you may not know: before he co-founded  Guest of a Guest, Cameron Winklevoss was involved in the development of a certain now-ubiquitous social network. Now, Sony Pictures is producing "The Social Network", which will tell the story of the founders of Facebook, and it was just announced that Cameron, along with his twin brother Tyler, will be portrayed by Gossip Girl actor Armie Hammer.

David Fincher, who recently did the Curious Case of Benjamin Button, will be directing the movie.  Fincher is quite the magician when it comes to CGI and special effects, so he should be able to pull of having Hammer play both brothers (shooting scenes twice).

Hammer will be joined by Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake (!!!). The script was written by Aaron Sorkin, so hopefully we can expect a lot of witty and inspirational dialogue while the characters race around Harvard. Kevin Spacey is also another producer involved in the project.

Who will be playing their partner, Divya Narendra? #8 HERE is our guess.

And here is the latest article about the twins in the London Times (they are currently training/studying at Oxford).
