Original STAR WARS star Mark Hamill is to make his directorial debut by making fun of his comic book nerd fans.

The actor, who played Luke Skywalker in the first three Star Wars films, shot hours of footage at San Diego, California's 2003 COMIC-CON convention for the project, which will be released on video in January (04).

Hamill will play a comic book collector in the film, which will also feature cameos from The Simpsons creator Matt Groening and Tom Kenny, who created kids' favourite Spongebob Squarepants.
