Even though filming for Catching Fire has shifted to Georgia and Hawaii, North Carolina reported, Russ Bowen, continues to be one of the best sources for new rumors concerning the future of the series. In two tweets posted to his twitter account yesterday, Russ reported that Lionsgate isn’t quite done with the sequel, but that that hasn’t slowed down plans to begin production on the third film in the franchise later this year:
While we do know that Katniss and crew are heading back to Hawaii to finish up some of the arena work for Catching Fire, no news of filming in LA or of the film’s budget have come to light as of yet. We’ve heard nothing aboutMockingjay: Part 1, with the exception that the script has been completed. So please take both tweets with a HUGE grain of salt!
