We previously posted about Clayton County International Park as one of the upcoming filming locations for Catching Fire. In a new Atlanta Journal-Constitution article about the economic impact of the film industry on Clayton County, they mention a bit more about where Catching Fire will be filming.
Parts of the second movie in “The Hunger Games” trilogy will be filmed over the next few months at Clayton’s International Park. The production brings with it demand for movie extras, moonlighting gigs for local police and work for local businesses.
… “Catching Fire,” the second “Hunger Games” film, will shoot at a man-made water park known as “The Beach” because it was built as the beach volleyball venue for the 1996 Olympics. The park is being transformed into a post-apocalyptic setting for the movie, which is based on a book about children forced to fight to the death for food. Other parts of the movie will be shot in Atlanta and Hawaii.
Catching Fire is expected to shoot at the park in late October-November. Do you think they’ll be filming Arena scenes at “The Beach”?
