The Hunger Games to Set the Stage on Fire in 2016
Lionsgate is looking to expand on The Hunger Games franchise in 2016 by bringing it live to the stage. The studio announced Friday that it had teamed with Dutch media company Imagine Nation and U.S. based Triangular Entertainment to bring the show to a new purpose built theatre next to Wembley Stadium in London.
Producers are Robin de Levita, co-founder of Imagine Nation, along with U.K. promoter Harvey Goldsmith, Triangular Entertainment’s Warren Adams, Brandon Victor Dixon of WalkRunFly Productions and entertainment executives Robert Harris and R&R Media’s Gary Ricci.
I’m thrilled to be partnering with an innovative next generation studio like Lionsgate on a property that resonates so deeply with global audiences. The theatre is a fantastic medium to bring the many meaningful layers of Suzanne Collins’ writing to life. – Robin de Levita
The stage show will open less than a year after the fourth and final movie in the franchise The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two which launches in November 2015.
Robin de Levita and the entire production team are the perfect partners for extending ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise into a live theatrical experience. Their creative genius, combined with world-class production values and state-of-the-art technology will provide a uniquely immersive experience for fans around the world. – Tim Palen Lionsgate Chief Marketing Officer
