Lionsgate Wants To Game

Lionsgate, the studio who was smart enough to pick up The Hunger Games series for movie distribution, wants to jump into video games.The division will be headed up by ex-Nerdist Industries.  CEO Peter Levin. He'll be in charge of procuring new IP's for the gaming company as well as helping develop concepts for preexisting products that Liongate holds.

"Gaming has become one of the most explosive growth areas of the content business, and Peter's mandate will be to build a portfolio of premium digital properties as we expand our leadership in films and television programming into digital content as well."

Sounds like they want a chunk of that gaming business money.

The first question was, will there be a Hunger Games, game? We don't know. But Lionsgate does hold quite a number of titles that could make for amusing video game content. The Expendables. Twilight...okay I'm taking that back. Not Twilight. Weeds. Mad Men.Yes, they did produce a few television series. All possibilities under this new gaming division.
