Is Catching Fire Coming to Dawsonville?

Rumors are that filming starts September 10 for the Catching Fire, sequel to the archery-laden film Hunger Games. Film directors decided not to go back to North Carolina where Hunger Games was filmed but to use movie-friendly Georgia as the set for part two in Suzanne Collin's Hunger Game series.

Casting for movie extras for Catching Fire has already started. There might even be an extra spot or two still available. Check out the movie's casting call.

What's great about Catching Fire's filming, according to the rumors, is that movie crews may be coming to Dawsonville, Ga., again. Earlier this year, movie crews spent a week in Dawsonville filming Clint Eastwood's new movie, Trouble with the Curve. (Who knew that Dawsonville was so photogenic?)

And it's with tremendous anticipation that we wait for some of the stars to actually appear in Dawsonville. Here's hoping we run in to a star or two in Walmart or at The Varsity - Dawsonville.

Here are just a Catching Fire Cast that we could see:
  • Jennifer Lawrence 
  • Josh Hutcherson
  • Liam Hemsworth
  • Donald Sutherland
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman
  • Stanley Tucci
  • Lenny Kravitz
  • Elizabeth Banks
  • Amanda Plummer
  • Woody Harrelson
