Star Wars has been spoofed numerous times before, perhaps most notably by Mel Brook’s Spaceballs. Now, the writing team behind spoof movies like Scary Movie and Epic Movie have revealed that they are taking on the sci-fi series with a parody movie of their own. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are making a spoof of Star Wars.
It has the wonderful and long title, Star Worlds Episode XXXIVE=MC2: The Force Awakens the Last Jedi Who Went Rogue.” Friedberg and Seltzer will write and direct the film, which is slated to enter production this fall. There is no word yet on who will star in the movie or when it will premiere. Presumably, it will riff on the various Star Wars movies from throughout the years.
In addition to Scary Movie and Epic Movie, Friedberg and Seltzer made the Hunger Games spoof The Starving Games and the Fast & Furious parody Superfast!. In terms of other upcoming projects, they are working on a Taken parody called Who the F#@k Took My Daughter.
The next real Star Wars movie is this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
