Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer held a conference call with analysts this morning, and it included tidbits about two entities we follow pretty closely around these parts: The Hunger Games franchise and horror outlet FEARnet. Read on for the scoops!
With regard to the former, Feltheimer said the studio has been “approached in two territories about potential theme park opportunities” for The Hunger Games. “We’re pursuing them,” is all he’d say at this point.
Of most interest to us, however, is what the exec said about FEARnet. We may see some changes soon at the VOD and broadband horror movie and TV outlet Lionsgate co-owns with Sony and Comcast. The partners “continue to be mystified that FEARnet isn’t being picked up by more” pay TV companies, Feltheimer said. “We’re trying to figure out how to make FEARnet a more important part of our business or some other way to deliver value, so stay tuned.”
We’ll keep you posted as further developments come down the pike.
