World’s worst directors plot Hunger Games spoof

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. To many on the internet – and indeed, in the universe – these two names inspire shivers of terror like no others.

If you’re not familiar with their work, they’re responsible for the ‘Movie’ series of movies; co-writing the first Scary Movieand then venturing out on their own to pen and helm Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, Meet the Spartansand most recently, Vampires SuckThey are currently at work on their still-timely spoof of Avatarentitled The Biggest Movie of All Time 3-D. What a filmography, right? But where is their Criterion retrospective?

According to Variety, their next project will be The Starving Games, which will no doubt brilliantly skewer the recent YA hit The Hunger Games and not merely be a crudely cobbled together collection of pop-culture acknowledgements, coming in under 70 minutes.

International rights to the film will be sold at Cannes, although distribution in Germany and the Middle East has already been secured. These guys make cheap movies, and they turn a profit, and until that stops happening, nothing will stop them.
