Spoof auteurs Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer – responsible for such garbage as Vampires Suck, Date Movie, Meet the Spartans and Disaster Movie – have come on board to write and direct The Starving Games, with K5 selling its international rights at Cannes, Variety reports.
Peter Safran will produce through his Safran Company shingle.
Though The Hunger Games will be front center for many of the terrible, obvious, pop-culture 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.
