This beautiful property in Atlanta is known as Swan House and apparently it is being used as one of the locations for Catching Fire.
Fellow fansite The Hob got word from one of their readers that the property was getting ready for filming The Hunger Games sequel. Now it seems On Locations Vacations has managed to get a bit more information on just what is planned for Swan House:
Over in our main Catching Fire post we recently added a tip, courtesy of The Hob, that The Hunger Games sequel was expected to shoot scenes at the Swan House in Atlanta soon.
Thanks to one of our tipsters we’ve now learned the Swan House will be used for a party scene for The Capitol on Sept 26, 27, 28. They also told us the shoot will include some custom-made costumes for the party goers, including a suit made out of bricks.
All of this matches up with the Swan House being listed as closed from now until September 28. Can’t wait to see what the do with it, but it certainly is a gorgeous property.
Our Mockingjay Jennifer Lawrence, who plays we all know Katniss Everdeen, is gracing the cover of this months W Magazine. In the interview she talks about Silver Linings, X-Men and The Hunger Games! Check out an excerpt below!
As soon as you got the part of Katniss, you began training. I read somewhere that you are so good with a bow and arrow that you could compete in archery at the Olympics.
I do love archery. I could kill someone with a bow and arrow if they’d hold still! With Hunger Games, I got really nervous about signing on to that huge franchise. I was afraid that Katniss would overwhelm any other character I’d try to do. But I love Katniss, and she didn’t take over as much of my life as I thought she would.
You play a rather crazy widow in Silver Linings. Technically, you are too young to play that character. Did you have to audition?
I did. But I didn’t mind. People always worry that I’m wrong for the part: I’m usually too young—or, in the case of Katniss, they thought I was too old. I was blonde, and Katniss is brunette. So many problems. There were a lot of things that we just brushed under the rug.
Even though Lionsgate has since removed the press release from their publicity page, and the casting isn’t included on the Catching Fire Casting page on Facebook, we’re assuming this announcement is official: Jeffrey Wright has been cast as Beetee!
