The duo behind Epic Movie & Meet the Spartans turn their sights to Star Wars

Meet the Spartans Star Worlds Star Wars parody

After winning some goodwill as two of the half-dozen screenwriters responsible for SCARY MOVIE, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer spent the next seventeen years turning that success into a series of increasingly terrible parody movies such as EPIC MOVIE, MEET THE SPARTANS and DISASTER MOVIE. The films were relatively cheap to produce and usually made their money back, which has kept the duo in business all this time, and now, it seems that they're set on giving the STAR WARS franchise their attention. Oh boy.

It has been announced that Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are set to write and direct STAR WORLDS EPISODE XXXIVE=MC2: THE FORCE AWAKENS THE LAST JEDI WHO WENT ROGUE. That's certainly a mouthful, and not a particularly funny one at that. The upcoming project is being fully financed by Covert Media and worldwide sales on the film will launch in Berlin. In a statement, Covert Media CEO Paul Hanson said that "Jason and Aaron are a powerhouse duo who have proven time and time again that they are fully tapped into the what audiences love. Their fearless take on pop culture has us beyond thrilled to tackle the world’s most popular franchise with the two of them leading us into a galaxy far, far away." Beyond a sort of morbid curiosity, I can't say that I find anything appealing about these movies, but I'm sure they must have their fans.

With their comedic take on the franchise's most beloved characters both old school and new, Star Worlds will leave no convention, cliché, or iconic moment untouched in yet another hilarious parody guaranteed to make you laugh, gasp, cringe, and cry out while having the best time ever in a movie theater.

Pre-production on STAR WORLDS EPISODE XXXIVE=MC2: THE FORCE AWAKENS THE LAST JEDI WHO WENT ROGUE is currently underway and looking at a Fall 2017 shoot.
