I love “The Hunger Games.” I’ll read the books, watch the movies and fangirl over the promos and trailers for “Mockingjay: Part 1″ until my obsession reaches a borderline unhealthy level, but if there’s one thing I’m not so enthusiastic about, it’s feeling like I’m in “The Hunger Games.” NOPE.
But soon we may all see firsthand what it’s like to head to the Capitol, because rumor has it that Lionsgate, the studio that brought the popular book series to theaters, is in talks to create theme parks based on the world. Why? Because everyone wants to feel like they’re being forced by a totalitarian government to fight to the death, obvi. Sounds like family fun to me!
According to Hypable, Lionsgate’s most recent earnings call revealed their plans for development:
“During the quarter, we also continued to extend The Hunger Games franchise into new lines of business,” he told investors. “In addition to the mobile game partnership and The Hunger Games traveling museum we announced on the last call, we’re deep into conversations with prospective partners on 4 continents to explore theme park attractions and other location-based entertainment opportunities.”
