This morning, during an appearance on CBS This Morning, Woody Harrelson confirmed the sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, will begin filming next month in Atlanta.

During the interview he noted, “The part I’m not in is going to be shot in Hawaii, which happens to be where I live. It’s one of life’s ironies.”

As for the Hawaii shoot, according to Tim Ryan’s Reel Hawaii, “after scouting Kauai, Maui, Hawaii island, and Oahu, executives for Hunger Games: Catching Fire selected Oahu as a location for four to five weeks of filming beginning as early as November.”

With filming gearing up to start in a matter of weeks, a local Atlanta casting agency has started looking for extras.

Below is a recent casting call for The Idiom which seems to be the working title for Catching Fire.

5 Kaitlyn :) August 14, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Can I have the exact location in where it’s filming in Atlanta? I know it’s in Henry County, but is it in a park? If so which one? Please Answer! My friend and I are trying to go there and see the actors/actresses… and possibly be extras! Thanks for anyone who answers this!


6 Kalina September 5, 2012 at 6:18 am

They are supposed to be filming at the Georgia World Congress center, and a few other places which I don’t know, but if your going to be an extra you need to send in an email, and FAST too, because I know they’re about to start filming, and from the sounds of things if you wait any longer your not going to get in.
May the odds be ever in your favor!

Well I play soccer and today (October 13th) we played at the Howard School which is right across from the Goat Farm Arts Center which is on Foster Street in Atlanta which is where they are filming currently (me and my friends flipped out when we drove up and saw policemen then the set which was legitimately 10 feet from our field)


8 Kidron Bullock August 14, 2012 at 7:50 pm

I live in Clarke County and I have been obsessing over hunger games ever since book one! It would be a dream come true to be a part of this phenominal experience!!


9 Sara Reese August 18, 2012 at 9:37 am



10 Zoe Brewster August 29, 2012 at 9:08 pm

Same here!!


11 Kidron Bullock August 14, 2012 at 7:52 pm

I would also appriciate if someone would inform mr of the exact location in Atlanta…!


12 Jasmine velez August 17, 2012 at 6:03 am

I’m kind of confused. 50% of people are saying that extras are casting in wilmington, NC and 50% are saying its in Atlanta. I’d love to be an extra but the only way is if it’s in Atlanta. Wilmington is too far away.


13 Kaitlyn :) August 19, 2012 at 3:31 pm

its definetly in Atlanta, except I can’t figure out where, it seems to be very secretive :(


14 Ivey August 25, 2012 at 12:05 am

Because the movie is being filmed in 3 locations. North Carolina, Hawaii, and Georgia. So they need extras in all 3 states.


15 Brayden B August 19, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Wait why do all of them need to be skinny. There must be one district with medium+ figure


16 olivia August 21, 2012 at 4:39 pm

cuz u need to look starving


17 Sage August 20, 2012 at 2:01 pm

I live in Atlanta and I can only wish them luck finding skinny people here. “The Walking Dead” has already using what few we had…


18 Abbi T August 21, 2012 at 8:33 pm

How can I sign up? Like send a picture to that email an they will send back, then I just go? And go strt filmiing?!


19 Lizzie August 21, 2012 at 10:48 pm

Do I just send my picture, resume, and headshots??? Then do I get to be in the movie??? Could someone please respond cause I’ve found about 5 websites with a lot of different info.


20 Lori October 21, 2012 at 6:09 pm

You submit your pictures, and resume. If you fit the part they are looking to fill, then they will contact you will call time and location. Once you get the location, please do NOT post about it, as they do not want to have super fans showing up and delaying the filming. They need professional actors and extras ONLY, please do not submit if you are just a fan trying to meet famous people.


21 Eden Semel- Important, Please Read August 23, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Hi! I was interested in being an extra in catching fire, so I sent you and email with all my information, but the email wont send because it is saying your email inbox is full. when you have time can you please get back to me? eden.semel4@gmail.com
Thank you!


22 Andrew B August 25, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Damn it, When I was first told about this, I was hoping I would have at least a solid month of starving myself before they needed the extras.


23 Tainique Taylor August 27, 2012 at 11:48 am

i sent an email to the email address idomavailcheck@gmail.com, but the email won’t go thru for catching fire extras

33 Kalina September 7, 2012 at 5:08 pm

They don’t release the official filming date and location. They don’t want people around set, not only is it a distraction (I just realized how Finnick Odair that sounded), but there are people with bad intentions, unlike you and I, and the fandooommm :D


34 anne lawson September 8, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Also is it to late submit the things you need to get the parts


35 anne lawson September 8, 2012 at 5:00 pm

I heard you were looking for a female “military type” for casting in this current “Catching Fire” Hunger Games movie.

I served during the Iraqi War from 2004-2006 with the U.S. Navy Nurse Corps and was deployed with U.S. Military Hospital Kuwait.

I love the Hunger Games series and would love to be a part of this movie, especially as a returning
War Veteran.

Thank you so much, in advance, for your consideration!

Allison Travis
