The Hunger Games‘ popularity naturally means that people are going to try to cash in on the success.
Scary Movie writers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are two of those people.
Variety has learned that they’ll be writing a film called The Starving Games:
Spoof auteurs Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have come on board to write and direct “The Starving Games,” with K5 selling its international rights at Cannes.
Peter Safran will produce through his Safran Company shingle.
Though “The Hunger Games” will be front center for many of the jokes, other pics it plans to pillory 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.
This is one of many films Friedberg and Seltzer have created that spoof several movies in one. Meet the Spartans, Disaster Movie, and Epic Movie are other recent (lame) creations.
