Lionsgate hired theme park and attraction creator Thinkwell Group on Friday to produce the exhibit, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Thinkwell … is spearheading an initiative for line extensions of The Hunger Games and all of our other brands," said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer during a teleconference, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "As a first step, we've already designed a state-of-the-art traveling museum involving costumes, props and other elements of the Hunger Games world that will begin touring the U.S. next summer."

In a November 2013 earnings call, Feltheimer admitted that Lionsgate had been approached in two different areas about theme park opportunities for the film series.
