After the books and movies it looks like The Hunger Games is taking the next logical step by becoming a theme park.

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer has said that the studio is in talks about creating an amusement park based on the hugely successful franchise.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Feltheimer revealed: "We have been approached in two different territories about potential theme park opportunities, which gives you a sense of the cultural impact of this franchise.

No further details about the potential park have been announced but Feltheimer added: "We are excited about those opportunities and are pursuing them."

Meanwhile, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - the second movie in the series - is set to break box office records when it opens later this month.

The Jennifer Lawrence-starring sequel is projected to take in an opening weekend haul of between $140 million (£87.5 million) and $150 million (£93.7 million), while other analysts claim that the dystopian action movie could surge past $160 million (£100 million) in its first three days on release.

The movie will hold its world premiere on Monday (November 11) before its worldwide release on November 22.

Here's the trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire:
