'SCARY MOVIE' writers sending up 'HUNGER GAMES'
EXCLUSIVE: It was only a matter of time before someone sent up one of the year's runaway hits: 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. Though HUNGER GAMES will be front center for many of the jokes, other pics it plans to pillory include THE AVENGERS, SHERLOCK HOLMES and the HARRY POTTER finale. Friedberg and Seltzer have made a living making fun of other people’s work starting with SCARY MOVIE, for which Friedberg and Seltzer served as writers and Safran was an exec producer. Since then the duo have co-written and co-directed VAMPIRES SUCK, DATE MOVIE, MEET THE SPARTANS and DISASTER MOVIE. -Justin Kroll.
