After books and films, could the next item on the list of the "Hunger Games" franchise be a theme park? Movie studio Lionsgate is considering it, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"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," Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts during a conference call Friday. "We are excited about those opportunities and are pursuing them."

Meanwhile, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," hits theaters Nov. 22. Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and others are leaving the set of the third and fourth films in the series, "Mockingjay: Part 1" and "Mockingjay: Part 2" to jet to Europe where "Catching Fire" is being released. They're set to visit London on Monday, with stops in Berlin, Madrid, Paris and Rome, before the red-carpet premiere in Los Angeles Nov. 18.
