New York – Julianne Moore is set to play former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in an upcoming TV film.

HBO Films said on Wednesday that Moore will star in the film Game Change, which follows John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign from when he chose Palin as his running mate through their defeat in the general election.

The film is based on the bestselling book Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime, by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

No other cast members were announced, and HBO did not say when production on the film might begin.

Moore is a four-time Academy Award nominee. Last year, she starred in the critically acclaimed film The Kids Are All Right, for which she earned a Best Actress Golden Globe nomination.
