julianne moore to star as Sarah Palin in GAME CHANGE for HBO

After only recently being in the news for being cast in ANOTHER BULLSHIT NIGHT IN SUCK CITY, Julianne Moore has just signed on to star as Sarah Palin in GAME CHANGE for HBO (Tina Fey was not available for comment). The film will center around the 2008 Presidential campaign and will chronicle Palin's nomination for Vice President until that fateful night on November 4th when Obama won the election.

Jay Roach, of AUSTIN POWERS and MEET THE PARENTS fame, is set to direct from a script by RECOUNT writer Danny Strong. The film will be based on the novel by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

Except for her portrayal as photographer Dora Maar in SURVIVING PICASSO, this will be the only other time in Moore's career where she has played someone who exists in real life. Moore was once attached to play Hillary Clinton, but that role eventually went to Hope Davis in THE SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP for HBO and the BBC.

Unlike Hillary, I can see Moore in this role and it's really about time that someone like HBO makes a full feature out of Palin's rise to fame.
