"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."

Words from an Icon Entertainment press release (courtesy of MovieLine), spoken by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the writers (and sometimes directors) behind spoof films like all the titles in the Scary Movie franchise, Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie and Vampires Suck; that's right folks, their next project will be a spoof of James Cameron’s Avatar.

And it'll be in 3D too... oh joy...

It's worth noting that Keenen Ivory Wayans directed the first 2 Scary Movies. Although I'm certainly not suggesting that he'll be up for directing an Avatar spoof.
