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.
The Hunger Games was released March 23rd, 2012 and stars Stanley Tucci, Wes Bentley, Jennifer Lawrence, Willow Shields, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Sandra Ellis Lafferty, Paula Malcomson. The film is directed by Gary Ross.
The Starving Games is in development and stars Maiara Walsh, Matt Cook, Lauren Bowles, Alexandria Deberry, Brant Daugherty, Cody Christian, Shawn Carter Peterson, Nick Gomez. The film is directed by Jason Friedberg, Aaron Seltzer.
