“The Hunger Games” sequel will film in the Atlanta area this summer through winter, according to a well-placed source with direct knowledge of the project.
“Catching Fire,” the second of the Hunger Games trilogy, will film July through December in metro Atlanta and beyond, our source says.
Movie and entertainment sites such as MTV.com have avidly been discussing who might be joining lead actress Jennifer Lawrence in the next movie to be adapted from Suzanne Collins’ phenomenally best selling young adult novels, with names like Taylor Kitsch, Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund being bandied about and “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson dismissing rumors that he had signed on.
The first “Hunger Games” movie, which set the box office afire like Katniss’ flaming chariot, was filmed in North Carolina. Members of the cast visited Atlanta just prior to the movie’s much anticipated release. (Sidebar: as I have brought up here before, I interviewed them for this press event and roundtable and shit, including ONTD's Lil' Sis and Liam Cyrus, and OMFG Amandla was the CUTEST EVER.)
TBQFH, I smell an ONTD ATL meetup coming so we can stalk the set, and I would be so down for that.
