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 Mellarkand 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.Victor's Village scenes to be filmed in Atlanta makes sense. I'm personally just not sure how they're going to be able to film in fall, since it only snows in Georgia in winter and those scenes require constant snowing, blizzards and cold weather. But as always, please consider this a rumor until Lionsgate confirms anything.
