We have heard the rumblings that Atlanta, GA was being scouted as the new location for the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, and now the Atlanta-Journal Constitution is reporting the same:
“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.
Lions Gate hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but it seems as though it might be true!! We will keep you updated!
