Ltd. announced in a joint press release (which we first came across at Variety) that they are opening a seven-zone theme park that will bring some of Lionsgate's best known properties to life. There will also be restaurants and souvenir shops for tourists and thrill-seekers alike to enjoy. The entertainment company is partnering with the development company Landing Jeju and the entertainment resort Jeju Shinhwa World for the park, which is going to be called Lionsgate Movie World at Jeju Shinhwa World.

Lionsgate Entertainment Company, the production group behind the film franchise stated that the Hunger Games theme park will be opened in #South Korea. The park will celebrate the studio's biggest films including the Hunger Games and Twilight series.

Fans of the massively successful book and film franchise "Hunger Games" will soon be able to visit the adventurous world of Panem.

Move over Disney World, there's a new, darker theme park on its way.

The theme park will also be featuring performances from entertainers, possibly recreating famous scenes from the movies or executing elaborate Korean-style dance routines.

"Lionsgate Movie World" is set to open sometime in 2019.

The theme park will be the centrepiece of Jeju Shinhwa World, which integrates various vacation resorts around Jeju Island.

Hopefully the 4D experience doesn't include being bitten by a werewolf or vampire. Two of the other movies by Lionsgate being made into a roller coaster haven are Robin Hood: Origins and Now You See Me (that movie about Vegas magicians).

As it opens a few years from now, the upcoming attraction will join several others that are inspired by hit movies, such as the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter in Florida and California, and Disneyland in various locations in the world, the article further noted.
