'Scary Movie' Writers Friedberg and Seltzer to Spoof 'The Hunger Games' in 'The Starving Games'

'Scary Movie' Writers Friedberg and Seltzer to Spoof 'The Hunger Games' in 'The Starving Games'

May 10, 2012

Just when you thought our blockbusters were safe from awful spoofing comes word that the not-so-brilliant minds behind films like Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans and Disaster Movie are back at it again. This time, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are interested in writing and directing a spoof movie called The Starving Games, which will not only directly spoof this year's The Hunger Games, but also films like The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes 2 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The film, which will most likely be comprised of lame references to the biggest films of the past two years, is on course to film later this year for a release in 2013, after everyone has already forgotten about the films they're spoofing. But these things somehow make money, which is why they get to keep making them. No word on plot details, but it doesn't really matter because just writing about this movie has already made us dumber. Warn your kids now before it's too late! [via Variety]
