The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire is set to be shot in the US city of Atlanta and the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Now Celebuzz is reporting that the search is on to find the perfect spot in Atlanta to film scenes for District 12′s Victor’s Village.
Catching Fire, the second book in The Hunger Games series, will film in Atlanta, Georgia, Celebuzz can confirm.
The first film was shot on location in North Carolina; now, we can reveal brand-new details on what exactly will be shot in Atlanta.
Sources close to the production tell us various locations in Georgia are currently being looked at for “Victor’s Village” in District 12 — the affluent neighborhood where winners of the Hunger Games live.
There are only three victors from District 12: Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark and Haymitch. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) live together, while Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) lives on his own.
Katniss’ mansion is described as white and clean; Haymitch’s mansion has more of a cottage feel with wooden windows.
Well, they didn’t quite get that right as Katniss and Peeta DON’T live together, but I can’t wait to see how they depict it. Kauai is expected to be the filming location for the Arena of the Quarter Quell. Just as a side note, this news is not official from Lionsgate, but from all of the sources around, I think it’s safe to say that it’s pretty much on the money.
