Facebook Movie Shoots on Campus

Fall was transformed into winter, and the lawn in front of Paresky Commons was transformed into Harvard Yard when Columbia Pictures came to the Andover campus on October 26 to shoot a movie scene. The movie, titled The Social Network, is about the founding of Facebook and is being directed by David Fincher. It is scheduled to be released in October 2010. This scene, which was set at night, shows Facebook cofounder Eduardo Saverin, played by actor Andrew Garfield, participating in an initiation ceremony for an exclusive Harvard club. Contrary to rumor, Justin Timberlake, who also stars in the movie, was not on campus for the filming. However, the writer of the screenplay, Aaron Sorkin, did make an appearance.
