Jay Roach Takes Us All The Way Back To 2008 Election In 'Game Change'
HBO Films is adapting Game Change, the bestseller by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, into a feature film with Roach at the helm. Screenwriter Danny Strong will be screenwritering the screenplay. Strong and Roach made Recount for HBO about the 2000 election, so it makes sense to bring back the Emmy winning creative team for another political made-for-TV movie. I think the title might be a bit premature though. With unemployment still high and wars still going on, I don't know that the game has been fully "changed."
