Lionsgate is taking Suzanne Collins' best-selling books series and turning it into a live stage production "using innovative and immersive staging techniques."

The stage adaptation of The Hunger Games is being developed by Tony Award-winning producer Robin De Levita and will premiere in London in the summer of 2016 in a newly constructed theater next to Wembley Stadium.

Robin says and I quote:  "The theater is a fantastic medium to bring the many meaningful layers of Suzanne Collin's writing to life."

The next big screen installment of The Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games:  Mockingjay Part 1, opens worldwide November 21.
