The Clayton County Board of Commissioners gave producers of the “Hunger Games” sequel, “‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the green light Tuesday to film some scenes from at Clayton County International Park this fall.
“The production company of ‘Catching Fire,’ GGX Productions, filed corporation papers with the North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State in April,” an acting-auditions.org report states. “The second film in a super-popular trilogy, ‘The Idiom,’ is now in pre-production and casting is officially underway in Los Angeles for new co-starring and supporting roles.
“The day players, extras, photo doubles, and stand-ins will be hired in the Atlanta area, where shooting [will] take place.”
The agreement allows the production company to begin entering the park — beginning this week — to prepare it for filming. The agreement shows the production company will be filming scenes in the park several times throughout late October and November.
The county will be paid $80,000 to allow “Catching Fire” scenes to be filmed in the park, according to the agreement. Project GGX will also employ off-duty police to provide security, and it will pay the officers $45 per hour for their time. The agreement calls on the production company to pay the county $75 per hour to have a Clayton County Water Authority employee drain and re-fill one of the lakes in the park.
