One of our forum participants lives around the North Carolina area where filming of The Hunger Games movie is just about to begin. ‘JohannaFan’ wrote that the rumor around Hildebran is that they’re going to blow up one of the old mill houses at the Henry River Mill site. She wonders whether the village is The Seam or not (considering it’s not until the end of book 2 that The Seam is destroyed).
Over at fellow fansite Down With The Capitol, they’ve had reports from the area that indicate that The Henry River Mill Village is indeed District 12.
Reports continue to come in from the upcoming Hunger Games filming in the Henry River Mill Village. Much of the information we’ve heard centers around the work on the Village Store. Locals note an awning, and a porch have been added off the front, and a new report has stated a sign with the word “Pastry” can now be seen. So, it looks like we have the location of the Mellark’s Bakery!
The road leading through the village was due to be closed yesterday, with filming slated to start this Thursday.
Here’s the video they have of a brief drive through the historic village, with signs of work in progress.
