Buy ‘District 12′ for $1.4 Million
Have you added visiting the set location for District 12 to your bucket list? Well what if you could just buy it instead? If you’ve got $1.4 million hanging around, sure! CNBC is reporting that Henry River Mill Village, the location for the shots of the Seam in District 12, has been put up for sale by the owner for a cool $1.4M.
The owner of the 72-acre property, Wade Shepherd, told the AP that the area is getting bombarded by fans driving by and taking photos “day and night.”
While he’s not a “Hunger Games” fan and hasn’t read the books, he has seized upon the fever by putting the property up for sale at a price of $1.4 million. Shepherd, 83, who lives across the river from Henry River Mill Village, told The Associated Press he bought the property to protect his interests. Shepherd did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC.
If you’re the ultimate Hunger Games fan and rich to boot, here’s your chance to own the ultimate piece of the movie. However, at a price like that, I would think you’d end up competing with Lionsgate in the bidding. It sounds like a relatively “cheap” way for a studio to secure the property for future movies and maybe even make a serious tourist attraction out of it.
