Rumor: Catching Fire’s Quarter Quell to Film on Oahu?
Thanks to some great detective work by our friend Crystal at Mockingjay.net, we’ve learned of a new potential shoot location for the Quarter Quell Arena. Previously it had been rumored that Kauai would be taking on the honors, but soon after Lionsgate nixed that rumor. Now thanks to Crystal andTim Ryan’s Reel Hawaii, we’ve learned filmmakers may have finally decided on Oahu as the island of choice.
After scouting Kauai, Maui, Hawaii island and Oahu, executives forHunger Games: Catching Fire selected Oahu as a location for four to five weeks of filming beginning as early as November and including preproduction will wrap in Hawaii just before the December Christmas break. Budget for the sequel is in excess of $100 million, sources said…
This information has not been confirmed by Lionsgate, so please treat this as a rumor for now, but it definitely sounds promising. We’ll update when we learn more.
