Access Atlanta reports:

“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 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 movie was filmed around Asheville and Charlotte, and there is certainly the possibility that some scenes in the second film will be shot in Western North Carolina. We’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled.

Thanks to White Lightnin‘ for the heads-up on this.
