Cinematic terrorists Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, known for such classic film deconstruction visual essays as Meet the Spartans, Disaster Movie, Vampires Suck, and the upcoming The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D, are reuniting for yet another spoof of pop culture, this time taking aim at The Hunger Games.
Called The Starving Games, the film will follow the same basic plot of this year's blockbuster while weaving in jokes about Marvel's The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2.
The main plot will revolve around a group of obese teenagers forced to eat to the death at a Las Vegas buffet by a government who feels fat kids are out of control. Of course, we will be greeted by characters like Fatniss Evereat and Pita Limon Meringue. Maybe Meat Loaf will make an appearance as himself.
The film is set to go before cameras later this year, with rights being sold at the Cannes International Film Festival.
