Game Change Authors Will Dish on 2012


Mark Halperin and John Heileman who exposed Sarah Palin as the most dreadful Veep candidate ever in their bestselling book Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime are now joining forces to write the behind-the-scenes look at the 2012 campaign between President Obama and Mitt Romney.

The working title is : Double Down: Game Change 2012

I want to know who will play Paul Ryan in the HBO movie! *makes popcorn*

From the New York Times
Penguin also said that HBO had optioned the rights to the book, which is set to appear in fall 2013.

“Game Change,” which made its debut at No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list in 2010, featured behind-the-scenes machinations within the Obama and McCain campaigns.

Mr. Halperin is a senior political analyst for both Time magazine and MSNBC and Mr. Heilemann is national affairs editor for New York magazine and political commentator on MSNBC.

From Screencrush:
Though nothing official has been locked down, it’s believed that HBO’s ‘Game Change’ team of director Jay Roach and Emmy-winning writer Danny Strong would return for the sequel. President Barack Obama was presented in HBO’s adaptation through real-world footage, but would likely be given an actor’s portrayal in a sequel.
