Looks like Hawaii will be the site for additional “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” filming in March.
While precise dates or the locale have not been announced, actress Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss Everdeen, let it slip that more filming is scheduled here following the Feb.24 Oscars, where she is a Best Actress nominee.
Lionsgate officials aren’t saying, nor are there hints from the Hawaii Film Office, but the UK’s Daily Mail quoted star Lawrence that Hawaii will be the destination. Other online sites since have reported the new shoot in the islands, where the crew had wrapped up filming last December.
Rumors earlier hinted that New Jersey might be the site for the pick-up work. Jersey was where Lawrence caught the flu bug — remember, she had a touch of the sniffles when she picked up her Golden Globes last month for her role in “Silver Linings Notebook.” The chilly clime and a T-shirt outfit were the reason.
You’ll know there’s film action if you just follow the movie vans and the dressing room trailers.
