HBO Sets 2008 Election Film

barackobama-041409HBO Films has optioned the in-the-works Harper Collins book Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime from political writers Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond) has been hired to adapt the book (which will be released in 2010).  The novel will take a behind-the-scenes look at the historic 2008 presidential election, focusing on the major players: Obama, Clinton, McCain and Palin

“Focusing on those characters went to the essence of why this was the campaign of a lifetime, not just for the candidates, but for the country,” Halperin said.

“It’s funny to call Obama and Hillary characters, but that’s how I have to look at them,” Leavitt said. “To me, the primary was one of the greatest title fights of the century, and John and Mark have a treasure chest of anecdotes and inside stories. I think it will present itself almost like a stage play, like ‘Frost/Nixon’ or ‘The Queen.’ “
