HBO Options ‘Game Change’ Sequel

The authors of the book Game Change are working on a follow-up to their 2010 best-seller called Double Down: Game Change 2012. HBO, which aired a made-for-TV movie based on the first book, has already optioned the sequel for a movie.

John Heileman and Mark Halperin will release Double Down: Game Change 2012 in Fall 2013. It will, not surprisingly, focus on the 2012 Presidential campaign between President Obama and Mitt Romney.

The original Game Change debuted on bookshelves in January, 2010, and debuted on HBO in March of this year. The movie became famous for Julianne Moore‘s portrayal of Sarah Palin as much as anything else, and garnered a more-than respectable 2.1 million live viewers.
