Julianne Moore


In 'Game Change', she portrays the 2008 vice presidential nominee who was a controversial choice made by John McCain.

Julianne Moore has nabbed a role in HBO's movie based on a best selling book of the same name by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. "Game Change" revolves around John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign and Moore is to portray none other than McCain's election partner and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

The movie, which is produced by HBO Films and Everyman Pictures, would be directed by Jay Roach using a screenplay by Danny Strong. These two previously teamed up for "Recount", HBO's docudrama on the 2000 election. Strong will also serve as co-executive producer with Roach as executive producer.

The script reportedly would highlight on McCain's controversial choice of Palin as his running mate which eventually led to their defeat in the general election. The book portrays Palin not just as an "ignoramus" who believed Saddam Hussein was behind 9/11 but also as possibly "mentally unstable".

The actor to play McCain has not been announced yet.
