According to Celebuzz, the set for the Victor Village (the place that is provided by the Capitol for the winners of the Hunger Games) might be filmed in Atlanta. Celebuzz has claimed that lots of scouts have been considering the state (which has also been the filming locations for The Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries, and What to Expect When You're Expecting) to shot some major scenes in Catching Fire. It is not yet clear if Lionsgate will still use North Carolina for some Distirct 12 scenes. Still, there has been no official announcements yet from Lionsgate on the exact filming locations as well as for casting major roles in the sequel. So far, Philip Seymour Hoffman has been officially in as head gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Mockingjay will be split in two parts and will be released in November 2014 and November 15, respectively.
