Moore to play Sarah Palin in film
Julianne Moore is set to play former US vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in an upcoming TV film.
HBO Films said that Moore will star in the film Game Change, which follows John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign from when he chose Mrs Palin as his running mate through to their defeat in the general election.
The film is based on the best-selling book of the same name.
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.
