Confirmed: ‘Catching Fire’ will be filmed in Atlanta

The Buzz is confirming the rumor we reported a few weeks ago: the sequel to The Hunger Games will be filmed in Atlanta, Georgia.

According to Buzz reporter Jennifer Brett, “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.”

The Hunger Games was filmed at various locations around North Carolina last year, but as we’ve explained, it’s not unusual for a movie franchise to change locations from one film to the next.

Stay tuned for more details as they emerge!

UPDATE: The rumors are flying again today (7/21) and the latest claims filming will begin on September 10th in Atlanta. Stay tuned!


  1. Interesting! I’m always glad to see more projects come to my city, and I’m a huge fan of the HG series. That said, I assume only the first half of the book will film here. Without spoiling too much, the second half really needs to be filmed somewhere with a very different climate; I can’t imagine how they could fake the locale with even the best greenscreen technology!

  2. Hey my name is Isabel, and I’m fourteen years old. I love The Hunger Games ad I’m in Atlanta in July, so I would love to know the locations of filming! And if you guys need an extra in the movie I am free.
