‘Catching Fire’ Arena to be Filmed in Kauai, Hawaii

 hunger games filming catching fire    Catching Fire Arena to be Filmed in Kauai, Hawaii   beachkauai 300x201For quite some time there have been rumors that the Quarter Quell in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will be shot in Hawaii. News reporter Russ Bowen, who kept readers apprised of filming locations in the first movie, has revealed via Twitter that the Arena scenes will be shot on Kauai, a Hawaiian island. The plan as of now is to film in Kauai the final three weeks of production.

It has also been reported that a Lionsgate photographer took a trip to Henry River, North Carolina (or “The Seam” as we like to call it) not too long ago. Filming in that location is set to begin in early fall.

Below are some photos of the island which will hopefully give you a better idea of what the Arena will look like:

    It’s rumor that Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the role of Plutarch. I thought I would say because it hasn’t been posted yet.

    • Dani Lore

      Thanks, Tay. I hadn’t heard about it, but he’s a very interesting choice if he has indeed received an offer.
