HBO Options Rights to 'Game Change' Sequel NY Times
HBO has optioned the rights to a sequel to bestseller "Game Change," which was about the 2008 presidential campaign, reports The New York Times' Media Decoder.
The new book, set to be published in fall 2013, will come from "Game Change" journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and will track the 2012 election, the story says.
"Game Change," which debuted at No. 1 on The New York Times bestseller list in 2010, became the basis of an HBO film that starred Julianne Moore as Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska and Woody Harrelson as Republican strategist Steve Schmidt. The project won five Emmy Awards.
The sequel is called “Double Down: Game Change 2012,” Penguin Press said Tuesday.
