Rumor: ‘The Hunger Games’ Catching Fire to Film on Oahu
According to Tim Ryan’s film blog, after consideration was given to Kauai, Maui, Big Island, and Oahu, the location chosen for filming for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is Oahu. Although this isn’t confirmed by Lionsgate, I’ve found the site pretty reliable in the past. And since I’m literally sitting on the island of Oahu as I write this, I’m incredibly excited.
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 and including preproduction will wrap in Hawaii just before the December Christmas break.
Four to five weeks makes a lot more sense than the previous three weeks that was being reported elsewhere, as it didn’t seem like much Arena could be shot in just three weeks. As for the photo above, that’s Lanikai Beach located in Kailua and is one of the prettiest beaches on this island!
