Four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore has been cast as former Alaska governor Sarah Palin in HBO’s upcoming film, Game Change.
HBO Films and Everyman Pictures’ Game Change follows John McCain‘s 2008 presidential campaign, from his controversial selection of Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.
Based on the bestselling book of the same name by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, the film will be directed by Jay Roach, with a script by Danny Strong.
Strong, who recently wrote HBO’s telepic Recount, will also serve as co-executive producer with Roach as an exec producer.
No other cast members were announced, and HBO did not say when production on the film might begin.
Palin has famously been portrayed by actress Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live.
