The Hunger Games is Going to Film in Atlanta!!!

Citing "a well-placed source with direct knowledge of the project," the AJC states that the sequel to The Hunger Games will be filmed in Atlanta!

The arena used in the second book, Catching Fire, is quite different than the wilderness that was used in the first book.  That movie was filmed in North Carolina.  The 75th Annual Hunger Games in Catching Fire takes place in a large, circular domed arena with (if I recall correctly) a different man made-induced natural catastrophe occurring each hour.

This would seem to call for a very large sound stage.  However, Atlanta would make for a great Capitol City!

Seeing as Little Shop has sold about 4 bazillion of these books, I'm sure our store could be included somehow.  Mmmmmm.
