'The Hunger Games' Amusement Park Could Be In The Works
If there's already a Harry Potter theme park, why shouldn't there be a Hunger Games one? Lionsgate revealed today that the company is considering the possibility of throwing Katniss Everdeen to the ranks of the amusement park world for the wildly popular young-adult franchise.
During a conference call this morning, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer briefly mentioned to analysts that he was looking into theme parks in two areas; this reveal came after an analyst asked if the merchandising sales had done well, reported Variety.
“We’re excited about those opportunities and we’re pursuing them,” Feltheimer said, according to The Wrap.
The second installment of the series, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, will be released in theaters Nov. 22, and is based on Suzanne Collins' book trilogy about a dystopian future. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson are currently shooting the third and fourth films, and taking a "break" on a worldwide promotional tour for Catching Fire.
