Hunger Games – The Stage Show?

It would appear that the best-selling trilogy and blockbuster film franchise The Hunger Games is set to be made into a stage show in summer 2016, it has been announced.

The “innovative” stage adaptation will launch in a purpose-built theatre next to Wembley Stadium in London and it will be created by Robin de Levita, who was behind a Dutch stage show about World War Two diarist Anne Frank.

The movie adaptations of The Hunger Games have already taken around $1.5bn (£946m) at the worldwide box office and there are still two films to go including The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which is released in cinemas at the end of this month.

Tim Phelan, chief marketing officer for Lionsgate – the company behind The Hunger Games film franchise – said the team behind the stage adaptation would “provide a uniquely immersive experience for fans around the world”.

Broadway producer Mr de Levita added: “The theatre is a fantastic medium to bring the many meaningful layers of Suzanne Collins’ writing to life.”
