During a Friday conference call, the CEO of Lionsgate (LGF[3]), which is gearing up for the release of the next installment in the franchise, told journalists that his company had been approached about launching a Hunger Games theme park, the Hollywood Reporter noted.

Jon Feltheimer said that Lionsgate had received offers “in two different territories” about possible theme parks.

The first movie in the series — based on the bestselling young adult novels by Suzanne Collins — was a box office success. The second movie, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which cost a reported $130 million to make, hits the big screen on Nov. 22.

A third and fourth film are currently in production.

Shares of Lionsgate fell almost 1% in Monday morning trading.
