31 March, 2015
Hawk-eyed Katniss Everdeen and her evil nemesis, President Snow, are set to become Dubai’s newest residents after a deal to create a theme park inspired by the billion-dollar-grossing film franchise. The operator Dubai Parks and Resorts said on Tuesday it is partnering with Canadian-American entertainment company Lionsgate to bring The Hunger Games franchise, which is also a best-selling book series, to its Hollywood-themed attraction, Motiongate Dubai. A Lionsgate zone will also feature a live stage show based on its Step Up film series. Motiongate, which is scheduled to open in October 2016, is expected to attract more than three million visits a year to its 27-ride “journey of films”.
