Thesp joins Sorkin-written pic about Facebook

Rashida Jones is the latest to log in to Columbia Pictures’ “Social Network.”

Justin Timberlake and Jesse Eisenberg have already boarded the David Fincher-helmed pic, which revolves around the founders of the social-networking website Facebook. Aaron Sorkin penned the screenplay.

Pic is currently lensing in Los Angeles.

Jones, who recently wrapped the bigscreen drama “Monogamy,” sold her script “Frenemy of the State,” which she co-wrote with Will McCormack, to Universal. In addition, she and McCormack’s screenplay “Celeste and Jesse Forever” is in development at Overture, with Team Todd producing. Jones will also star in the comedy.

The actress-scribe, who most recently starred opposite Paul Rudd in the DreamWorks comedy “I Love You, Man,” can currently be seen on the smallscreen in NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.”

She is repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment.
