Hmmmm this morning I came across this report from the Star Advertiser that the Hawaiian Island of Kauai will not be one of the filming locations for Catching Fire despite online buzz.
According to the Star Advertiser :
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will not be filmed on Kauai as mentioned here last week. Christina Gizoni, a Lionsgate representative, said in an email: “While we have not yet released the filming locations, Kauai will not be one of them.” Further comment was not forthcoming. Mea culpa. …
Yes, the filmmakers did scout Hawaii locations, prompting buzz online and in blogs since June about Kauai. But it’s a no-go.
If this is true, I’m disappointed that it won’t be filmed there, as it seemed to be the perfect location. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what Lionsgate will officially announce in the future!
