Catching Fire to Begin Filming Soon

Fans of The Hunger Games trilogy have been waiting around impatiently for news of the upcoming movie, Catching Fire. There was that big hoopla over Gary Ross leaving and Francis Lawrence coming in. Fans began to worry that the filming for Catching Fire would be set back.

Woody Harrelson, the actor who plays Haymitch in The Hunger Games, recently did an interview with CBS. He announced that filming for Catching Fire would begin in September. The shooting will take place in Atlanta and Hawaii. You can find that video here. Note: Catching Fire news is during the last one minute of the video. The rest of the video is dedicated to another movie of Harrelson’s.

Are you guys excited? I know that I am! I cannot WAIT to see Catching Fire hit the big screen!

 

That’s all for now, folks. See you next time!

Romeo Miller Interested in Catching Fire/Mockingjay

 Romeo Miller recently gave an interview with MTV where he stated that he would be interested in filming in The Hunger Games trilogy. Miller announced that he had a meeting with Lionsgate about appearing in the next film, but he was unable to give any more information than that. Romeo also mentioned that he had NOT read any of The Hunger Games books. You can find the MTV interview here.

Romeo Miller has appeared in Honey, Romeo!, The Defenders, Charlie’s Angels (the tv series) and Madea’s Witness Protection. Romeo Miller is also a singer and has his own clothing line.

I can’t really picture Romeo Miller in any role for either Catching Fire or Mockingjay. The interview made it seem as if he just wanted that “it” role, rather than having any real interest in the trilogy. I was also really put off by the fact that he hadn’t read the books. Why the heck are you interested in a major BOOK-movie when you HAVEN’T read the books? Ugh!

Isabelle Fuhrman Interested in Divergent

Fans of Divergent, say hello to Isabelle Fuhrman. You may recognize Fuhrman from her role as Clove in The Hunger Games. Fuhrman recently gave an interview with MTV News where she expressed her interest in Divergent.

I think that Isabelle Fuhrman would be PERFECT for Divergent. I could totally see her as Tris. Casting news is still a little ways off, but I definitely think that the directors should keep their eye on her.

What do you guys think about Isabelle Fuhrman in Divergent? Could you see her as Tris? Is there someone else you want to play that role? Sound off in the comments!

That’s all for now, folks. See you next time!

Sam Claflin Cast as Finnick Odair!

Well, hellllllllllllllllo, handsome! Ladies and gentlemen, meet Sam Clafin, our Finnick Odair! It has been such a long wait to find out who would be playing Finnick in Catching Fire. Honestly, I’m not disappointed. He is pretty. And, as Finnick is my favorite character in The Hunger Games trilogy, I’m glad that Lionsgate got it right!

Sam Claflin might look familiar to you, as he recently starred as William in Snow White and the Huntsman. Claflin has also appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Any Human Heart, and The Lost Future.

What do you guys think about Sam Claflin as Finnick? I know that a lot of people are probably going to be upset, as they had specific actors they wanted cast as Finnick Odair. I’m hoping that there will also be a lot of people that approve of this casting choice.

I found my information here, among many more websites.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Cast In Catching Fire

Entertainment Weekly has announced that Philip Seymour Hoffman is set to play the role of Plutarch Heavensbee in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark.   Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) — a competition that could change Panem forever.

Shooting is scheduled to start later in the year.

Personally, I’m stoked. Hoffman is a phenomenal actor. What do you guys think? Yay, or nay?

Divergent Hits Pre-Production Status

 Veronica Roth’s popular dystopian novel, Divergent, will soon be making it to the big screen! Evan Daugherty, the screenwriter of Snow White and the Huntsman, has been reported to have recently finished the screenplay for Divergent. Lionsgate has been reported to be looking into filming Divergent sometime in 2012.

I found my information here.

As I type this, which is like a week before you guys will read it, I am currently reading Divergent. Well not whillllle I type it, but you get the gist. I’m only on like chapter 7, but I LOVE IT. LOVE. I have heard such great things about this book. I’ll need to finish it to make my final opinion, but I believe there is a HUGE chance that this book will be the next Hunger Games. I am so excited and so annoyed because I know I’ll have to go out and buy Insurgent.
