Friedberg and Seltzer Plan Spoof Movie The Starving Games


Scary Movie writers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have announced, via Variety, their intention to write and direct a spoof film based on this year’s runaway hit, The Hunger Games. Titled The Starving Games, their film will follow their series off big-screen parodies that include Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, Disaster Movie and Vampires Suck.

As with all of their films, the parodies within the pair’s The Starving Games won’t be limited to the world of Suzanne Collins’ Panem but will, instead, incorporate other recent big screen hits like Marvel’s The Avengers, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part II and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

Peter Safran will produce and, while no specific production start is listed, The Starving Games is likely to film in the very near future.
