Lionsgate is moving ahead with plans to create a theme park based on its blockbuster “Hunger Games” franchise, the studio reportedly announced on Friday.

Lionsgate said it has tapped theme park creator Thinkwell Group to launch a traveling exhibit, “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition,” to debut in major museums and institutions across the U.S. next summer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Thinkwell … is spearheading an initiative for line extensions ofThe Hunger Games and all of our other brands,” said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer, THR reported.

“As a first step, we’ve already designed a state-of-the-art traveling museum involving costumes, props and other elements of theHunger Games world that will begin touring the U.S. next summer,” he said.

THR reports that the studio is also eyeing theme park attractions and other location-based entertainment opportunities to tap into new revenues.
