The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) Producers are betting there's appetite for a stage version of "The Hunger Games."

Movie studio Lionsgate says it is teaming up with entertainment companies in the U.S. and the Netherlands to create a live version of the book and film series about a dystopian world in which teenagers are forced to fight to the death.

Lionsgate, Dutch media company Imagine Nation and U.S.-based Triangular Entertainment said Friday that the stage spectacular featuring "innovative and immersive staging techniques" will open in 2016 at a new venue beside London's Wembley Stadium.

Producers include Robin de Levita, who created a rotating auditorium for the Dutch musical "Soldier of Orange" and a rotating set for the Anne Frank play "Anne."

"Mockingjay: Part I," the third movie based on Suzanne Collins' novels, opens this month.
