If you were starting to wonder if Hollywood could possibly squeeze any more money out of the Hunger Games franchise, shame on you for doubting them. Lionsgate is now in talks to develop theme parks based on the popular series, Variety reports. The entertainment company’s CEO Jon Feltheimer made the announcement Friday morning.

“We have been approached in two different territories about potential theme park opportunities, which gives you a sense of the cultural impact of this franchise,” Feltheimer told analysts on a conference call. He said they were “pursuing” those opportunities, but beyond that, didn’t offer too many additional details.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second film in the series — based on the dystopian novels by Suzanne Collins — opens worldwide on Nov. 22. No word yet on when these theme parks will open, but here’s hoping they’ll include sweet roller coasters that allow you to shoot arrows and blow things up in midair.


I'm surprised how one movie can impact the popularity of something. I mean 98% of the kids at my school and kids i know never even heard about this series until 1 movie came out. I use to love the books .. until it became over hyped.  Seriously books like Battle Royale and The Running Man were twice as gory as this. 


Jewish exec wants the Hunger Games Theme Park. I can one-up that. How about the Auschwitz Theme Park?
