The same people who brought the cinematic world some of its most cherished masterpieces like "Disaster Movie" and "Meet the Spartans" (please note the sarcasm) will be whipping up a new spoof movie on "The Hunger Games."
Yep. According to Variety, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (who probably should've called it quits at "Scary Movie 2") have targeted "The Hunger Games" as the subject of their next
cash-run spoof film, "The Starving Games."
Friedberg and Seltzer are also planning to take on "Sherlocke Holmes," "The Avengers," and "Harry Potter" in the flick, but "The Hunger Games" will be the prime focus (and the namesake) of the movie. With a $618 million (and counting!) worldwide box office so far, it's not hard to guess why the two are jumping on the Capitol train for their next meal.
Distribution rights to "The Starving Games" have of course already been snatched up in some international markets, but they'll be shopping it out to others at Cannes this month.
The duo's last effort at punning a popular book-to-film series was "Vampires Suck," which spoofed "Twilight" and "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." Irrespective of its disastrous 4% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, that movie grossed $36.6 million domestically and $43.8 million from international markets with a $20 million budget.
