Julianne Moore has been cast as Hillary Clinton in new film "Special Relationship".

The actress will star opposite Dennis Quaid -- who will play Hillary's husband, ex-U.S. President Bill Clinton -- in the movie which will show how Bill's 'inappropriate relationship' with White House intern Monica Lewinsky nearly ended his time in power.

A source said: "This is a big role for both of them. Playing Hillary, a wife who stands by her unfaithful husband, will be something she can get her teeth stuck into."

Dennis reportedly beat four other leading actors - Russell Crowe, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Alec Baldwin and Tim Robbins - to win the role of Bill.

"Special Relationship" is the closing film of a political trilogy written by Peter Morgan, following "The Deal" -- about Tony Blair's rise to power in the British Labour party - and "The Queen" which focused on the reaction of the British Royal Family to the death of Princess Diana.

"Special Relationship" will be Peter's directorial debut.

The film will also feature Michael Sheen as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who will be seen growing frustrated with Bill as his attentions move from politics to his own personal crisis.

"Special Relationship" starts filming in the UK and US in July.


I loved 'The Deal'
