The Hunger Games: Rhythm District 13

Leave a comment

joshhutchersoncomicconSo apparently Josh Hutcherson–The Hunger Games‘ Peeta–suggested recently that there would be more Hunger Games films. He quickly backtracked after co-star Jennifer Lawrence’s wide-eyed reaction reminded him of that pesky non-disclosure form they all signed. But now fans are wondering what will follow the events of books within the film franchise.

An option I’ve been tossing around in my own head found inspiration from the most recent viral marketing video: “A Message from District 13–Stand With Us.”

Hey, that drill line choreography, stark, monochromatic color scheme, and military-esque costumes reminds me of something…

Here’s my idea: Let’s take this similarity all the way. Let’s get some good ol’ musical military film-making with Janet Jackson behind the scenes. Perhaps after the Capital falls, the new nation will want to make some propaganda telling the story of the war. Taking a note from the glamour and showmanship of the Capital, they make it a musical with epic song and dance numbers. I just can’t see where this could go wrong. Lionsgate, have your people call me.
