Julianne Moore will be taking the reins of playing Sarah Palin from Tina Fey. The red head will be going brunette and rock a Bumpit for a new movie.
HBO is cranking out at film about the 2008 Presidential election entitled, “Game Change.” The movie is based off the book with the same title penned by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. According to Deadline: Jay Roach, who also helmed the ‘Meet the Parents’ films along with ‘Recount’ (a film about the 2000 election snafu in Florida), will be directing the film. ‘Recount’ won a Golden Globe and several Emmy awards.
So the question is whether or not the film version of the book will be more of an attack on Palin or stick to its premise and portray her as a supporting cast member versus the focus. Moore, who has multiple Oscar noms under her belt, was cast first and she is attached to liberal views. So your guess is as good as mine. The rest of the cast to join her should be interesting.
