Remember when Hollywood used to give us parody movies that had multiple targets and laughs?
That day seems to have passed. The latest entry in the parody line is The Starving Games.
Based on the Hunger Games, this comedic take on the popular movie and novels is hurrying into production. And it’s found it’s female lead.
Maiara Walsh has grabbed the lead in the film, which will be directed and written by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo behind Date Movie, Meet the Spartans and Vampires Suck. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film will also riff on The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes and the end of the Harry Potter films.
Walsh will play the lead, a character named Kantmiss Evershot.
Pretty Little Liars actor Brant Daugherty has already been cast as the parody version of Gale.
