Scary Movie franchise writer Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are developing a parody of Star Wars revival, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Star Worlds Episode XXXIVE=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue plan to both write and direct the film, with Cover Media financing the film. The prospective film will be shopped around to distributors during the Berlin International Film Festival later this month.

"Jason and Aaron are a powerhouse duo who have proven time and time again that they are fully tapped into what audiences love," said Covert Media CEO Paul Hanson. "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."

Friedberg and Seltzer parodied 300 in 2008 with Meet The Spartans.

In the build-up to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mel Brooks said he was interested in making a live-action sequel to his 1987 parody of Star Wars, Spaceballs.
