The story you're about to read is not (entirely) true. It is, however, more accurate than most things on network television.

Following the recent news that Justin Timberlake will star in a new film about Facebook’s formation, eSarcasm has learned another tech-related movie is also under development with some well-known stars of its own.

The film, tentatively titled “Web 2.0,” will chronicle the last two years in the Web’s evolution. Several A-list performers have already been cast as key characters from the tech domain, eSarcasm has confirmed, all of whom were reportedly handpicked for their uncanny resemblances to their real-world counterparts.

Thus far, the following castings have been finalized:

• Craigslist founder Craig Newmark will be played by James Gandolfini.
