Have you ever watched The Hunger Games and thought to yourself, "Wow! This story about a dystopian future in which teens are forced to brutally murder each other would TOTALLY work as a stage production!"
Well, apparently you're not alone!
Lionsgate made a HUGE announcement today as the movie studio will be teaming up with Imagine Nation and Triangular Entertainment to bring Katniss, Peeta, and the rest of the gang to the theater!
Now if you'e thinking that a Hunger Games theatrical production sounds pretty ambitious, it's because it totally is! That's why they've recruited Tony Award-winner Robin de Levita, who is known for using insanely elaborate setups and even rotating stages!

Before you get too excited, we have some bad news for those of you not living in the U.K.: the show is set to take place in London at a brand new theater next to Wembley Stadium!
But don't worry too much! You still have plenty of time to prepare your trip across the pond as the show wont actually launch until 2016!
How will they recreate nail-biting moments, like Peeta slowly dying while disguising himself as a rock??? We have no idea, but we can't wait to find out!
