'Hunger Games' To Become Your Favorite Dystopian Bloodsport Theme Park

Though the opportunity was sadly overlooked in the first Hunger Games film, Lionsgate may at last give us the opportunity to ride around with our legs playfully dangling from the holes in Wes Bentley's beard. The studio is reportedly chasing the idea of developing their massive franchise into a weirdly-dystopian amusement park.

"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," Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts today in a conference call, robotically adding, "We are excited about those opportunities and are pursuing them."

The studio has not revealed where these distinct territories lie nor explained how depressing class disparity and teen-on-teen murder will be turned into a fun experience for the whole family. Woody's Wild Log Ride will probably help, though.
