Katniss Everdreen, the star of the blockbuster franchise The Hunger Games, is deadly with a bow and arrow, but can she carry a tune?
The Hunger Games is being adapted into a live stage show, or shall we say, "a theatrical experience," The Wrap reports. Hunger Games movie studio Lionsgate is working with Dutch media company Imagine Nation and American company Triangular Entertainment to bring a stage production of the popular books and films to a theater built next to London's Wembley Stadium in 2016.
The play will feature "innovative and immersive staging techniques" (cannons that blast death announcements into the sky? Arrows that whiz past audience members' ears?), and producer Robin de Levita is well-known for his unique 360-degree rotating stage sets. There's nothing in the announcement about the production being an actual musical, but if Katniss doesn't sing a duet with Peeta, what's the point?
The latest Hunger Games film, Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I, hits theaters November 21.
Will you go see a Hunger Games stage show? That's a rhetorical question, of course you will.
