Julianne Moore has been cast as 2008 Vice President candidate Sarah Palin in the HBO movie Game Change.

Game Change will center on the 2008 Presidential election and on John McCain's selection of Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his running mate.

Jay Roach will direct from a script by Danny Strong, which is adapted from the book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. The director and writer previously collaborated on another HBO political movie, Recount.

It isn't clear when production will start on Game Change, or when the movie will be released on the cable network.
