Ken Jeong in Twilight?

Well not really.  It seems the spoof guys are at it again.  This time it is a spoof of... you guessed it, Vampire movies.  Apparently the film is being filmed and rushed out this summer!


The 3,574-th send-up of the genre series will be cobbled together by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, better known as the unfunny pair of spoofsters behind Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, and the aptly-titled Disaster Movie.
Jeong supporting actor on NBC’s hilarious comedy series “Community” and the nemesis of The Hangover.  But despite his comedic qualifications, the 40-year-old actor will be wading through the same stagnant material we’ve may have laughed at two years ago.
Expect the same recycled bits about intense staring, Robert Pattinson’s hair, and Kristen Stewart’s lip-biting.  That’s just the Twilight gags.  I’m sure it’ll be packed with corny jokes about “True Blood” and “Vampire Diaries” too.  Don’t forget other dated references like Lady Gaga, Sarah Palin, and Tiger Woods.  Oh, and lots of scatological humor.
What’s surprising is the movie is scheduled for this August 18 (a Wednesday), which speaks volumes about the quality of a movie coming together two months before its theatrical date.  That’s already a crowded weekend, but the spoof could benefit from the long tail of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which bows June 30.  Or, you know, it could bomb.
I might just wait for the Hangover 2!
