Wright says that over the next 100 years, overpopulation and a huge gap between rich and poor could be contributing factors that may lead to humans hunting other humans for sport.
These 'Hunger Games' could be televised like the popular movie trilogy or included in stag events.
The Express reported that the idea could be fathomable as death as a spectacle, such as gladiator tournaments during the Roman Empire's rule, is not a new phenomenon.
Rich Americans currently pay huge fees to hunt animals in Africa, even in the face of huge criticism from the public and wildlife conservationists.
