The Hunger Games: Mockingjay pre-production underway in Atlanta

It doesn’t feel too long ago when we first reported on The Hunger Games movie beginning production, and here we are. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 are in the pre-production phase in Atlanta, Georgia.

LA Times, in their report on a firm called Fireman’s Fund that insures movies, included details about The Hunger Games preparations:

Filming on the next installment of ”The Hunger Games” won’t begin for another month, but Paul Holehouse already is assessing the risks.

Holehouse will fly to Atlanta this week to check for asbestos in an old warehouse — one among many sites that will be used during filming of the “Hunger Games” sequels.

He’ll also meet with stunt coordinators to review action scenes, plans for pyrotechnics and training for actors to ensure they are prepared to film various fights and chase scenes.

As we’ve now heard, and has been confirmed from several cast members including Liam Hemsworth, filming is set to begin in late September. Jennifer Lawrence was spotted reading Mockingjay (pictured below) and Sam Claflin recently tweeted about going back on his Finnick diet for the preparation, as well.

Thanks for the tip, The Hob!
