Lionsgate CEO Hints at ‘Divergent’ and ‘Hunger Games’ Spinoffs
Lionsgate head Jon Feltheimer revealed in a new interview that they’re deeply considering spinoffs for their two most popular franchises.
Feltheimer told The Hollywood Reporter this week that they hope to have continued success with The Hunger Games and Divergent franchises by spinning at least one of them off.
“We’re always looking for ways to extend all of our intellectual property. We’ve seen that’s what happened with Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, So we’re always looking for worlds within the IP that we haven’t explored yet.”
When pressed about what kinds of spinoffs Lionsgate could do for The Hunger Games, Feltheimer said,
“Not saying specifically for The Hunger Games, but we have other franchises, too. If you look at Divergent, for example, after the third book, [author Veronica Roth] actually put out a novella called Four. There may be other material there. One never knows when we dig into the treasure troves of these brilliant writers what we might find.”
