Scary Movie Team Will Spoof James Cameron's Avatar Next
Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the shrewd writer/director team behind Hollywood spoof films Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie and Vampires Suck, are about to embark on their most ambitious project yet: a 3D parody of James Cameron's Avatar.
The film, which will be the team's first 3D endeavor, will appropriately be titled The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D. In a press release from Icon Entertainment, who have already acquired the project's worldwide sales rights, Friedberg and Seltzer explain why Avatar is ripe for their brand of ridicule:
With a domestic box office of nearly 700 million dollars and an overseas haul of over 2 billion, it was only a matter time before this behemoth got a good ribbing. And what could possibly be riper for satire? You got half naked blue people plugging their hair into strange flying horses so they can read their thoughts! And nothing in this mega blockbuster is off limits, from its overly simplified message of "big corporations = bad; tree hugging environmentalist = good," to the broadly drawn characters like the buffed out Colonel who's in a perpetual 'roid rage to the very colorful, glowing and... come on, totally stony world of Pandora. And just like "Avatar" our movie will be in eye popping 3-D - making it the very first spoof movie ever in this format.
And if The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D performs as well as Vampires Suck, Friedberg and Seltzer could easily extend their success with The Biggest Movie of All Time 2 after James Cameron releases his Avatar sequel. Pretty smart.
