Catching Fire on location | The Beach in Clayton County International Park

| September 25, 2012 | 6 Comments More

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has a new location.  This time word is that they will be shooting in the Clayton County International Park.  According to a report in the  Atlanta Journal Constitution the park is “being transformed into a post-apocalypic setting for the movie”.

As the picture shows, the park includes a perfectly round beach that would be perfect for the start of the 75th Quarter Quell.  Filming in that particular area is due to take place later next month and into November.

Clayton County will be paid $80,000 in the deal it reached with Project GGX Productions Inc., according to documents obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Additionally, off-duty Clayton police officers will earn $45 an hour for security, and a Clayton County Water Authority worker will be paid $75 an hour to drain and refill the park’s lake.

“It’s a really big deal for us,” said Grant Wainscott, director of Clayton’s Economic Development and Film & Entertainment Office. “There’s a lot of community pride when they can see the county on the big screen. It’s a great positive. There’s a lot of challenging economic news in the region, and when we can highlight something incredible … this is by all means a great success story for Clayton County.”

    I suppose that makes sense because they’re on a tight schedule. Hmm..
