Scary Movie writers to spoof The Hunger Games in upcoming movie, ‘The Starving Games’
It was just a matter of time. As Variey reports, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, Scary Movie writers, are working on a spoof film based on The Hunger Games; it will be titled The Starving Games.
Spoof auteurs Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have come onboard to write and direct “The Starving Games,” with K5 selling its international rights at Cannes.
Peter Safran will produce through his Safran Co. shingle.
Though “The Hunger Games” will be front and center for many of the jokes, other pics to be pilloried include “The Avengers,” “Sherlock Holmes” and the finale of the “Harry Potter” franchise. Wild Bunch has already snapped up the German rights, and Falcon has taken the Middle East.
Friedberg and Seltzer have been working on spoof films for quite a long time. Their films include Date Movie, Meet the Spartans, Epic Film and, more recently, the Twilight spoof Vampires Suck.
What do you think about this, guys?
