News about filming on Catching Fire was relatively quiet last week, after a bevy of photos revealed actors on set (and in costume) during their first week on set earlier this month. Last week, Josh Hutcherson even took some time off and was spotted in the Los Angeles area riding his motorcycle and participating in a Straight But Not Narrow fundraiser, while co-star Jena Malone hit up the Emmy Awards over the weekend.
Both are likely back in Atlanta now (or will be soon), though, as crews are expected to film a pivotal scene in Catching Fire this week: a lavish party held in the Capitol for all of the returning victors.
According to The Hob, filming will take place at the Swan House September 26-28th — and will include elaborate, custom-made costumes, “including a suit made out of bricks.”
Some photos have already been seen of crews at work on the site, building additional set pieces. A fan even created an artistic rendering of the party scene featuring the Swan House (see photo above).
The Swan House was built in 1928 for the Edward H. Inman family, and has become one of Atlanta’s most recognized landmarks. The mansion is now kept as an historic site open to the public, and styled to show life during the 1920s and ’30s.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, some scenes will also be filmed at the Clayton County International Park over the next few months, in a man-made water park arena known as “The Beach.” Looking at photos of the area, it seems likely this will be used for filming scenes in the arena.
