*brain explodes*

Julianne Moore is set to star as Sarah Palin in HBO Films' Game Change. Directed by Jay Roach, the movie is based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s 2010 book about the 2008 Presidential elections and follows John McCain’s presidential campaign, from his selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.

Danny Strong, who previously wrote the Roach-directed HBO movie Recount, about the aftermath of the 2000 Presidential elections, penned the script for Game Change. Roach is executive producing, with Strong co-executive producing.

My mind was just blown that this was the same Danny Strong that was on Buffy. Never knew he was a writer. Was Recount any good?

I was so proud of him when Recount came out lol

They prob didn't want flawless Tina bc it'd seem more comedic than srs~
saann 9th-Mar-2011 09:02 pm (UTC)
but roach usually directs comedies so idk, this might go that way
prettysighs 9th-Mar-2011 09:08 pm (UTC)
possibly but game change is like a super srs poltical book~* so we'll see! either way if it should be comedic um tina > julianne.
forrealyo 9th-Mar-2011 08:59 pm (UTC)
This sounds like it could be interesting. Love me some Julianne.
fakevoices 9th-Mar-2011 09:00 pm (UTC)
why would someone even make a movie about this woman.

It's not like she's going to be painted in a really positive light though.
fakevoices 9th-Mar-2011 09:06 pm (UTC)
i don't know i just don't like her very much
ohsookie 9th-Mar-2011 09:24 pm (UTC)
Yeah even if it's a comedy making fun of her...Tina Fey took care of that already.
leitao 10th-Mar-2011 06:24 am (UTC)
It's not just about her, though -- Game Change covered both presidential campaigns.

I read the book and it was pretty good. XD The dirt the authors dug up on Palin (from the mouths of her own former advisers, etc., and bitter McCain people) was awesomely hilarious.

bahahaha omg

saann 9th-Mar-2011 09:01 pm (UTC)

roach? this will be a comedy then?
vehiclesshockme 9th-Mar-2011 09:06 pm (UTC)
Roach also directed Recount (which Danny Strong wrote as well) and that wasn't a comedy.
