And it promises to use innovative and immersive theatrical techniques, with Dutch theatre wiz Robin De Levita at the helm.
The statement continues: "De Levita has recently created groundbreaking presentation formats for two productions in Holland.
"Soldier Of Orange, the hit Dutch musical, has been sold out since it opened four years ago. The audience sits in a 360-degree rotating auditorium that turns from set to set creating an unforgettable experience.
"ANNE, the first authorized play in 55 years based on The Diary Of Anne Frank, uses rotating life-sized stage sets. ANNE premiered in May 2014 in Amsterdam and has received rave reviews from around the globe."
De Levita himself added: "I'm thrilled to be partnering with an innovative next generation studio like Lionsgate on a property that resonates so deeply with global audiences.
"The theatre is a fantastic medium to bring the many meaningful layers of Suzanne Collins' writing to life."
