“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” has already begun filming in Georgia, and with more fans snooping around, images and set locations have started cropping up. The Hob and On Location Vacations slowly unraveled the mystery with helpful tips from sneaky fans. In August, most fandoms believed that the film “The Idiom” was a cover for “Catching Fire.” The details still remain hush-hush, but the Swan House in Atlanta has been nailed as a set piece for The Capitol party scene.
Thanks to one of our tipsters we’ve now learned the Swan House will be used for a party scene for The Capitol on Sept 26, 27, 28. They also told us the shoot will include some custom-made costumes for the party goers, including a suit made out of bricks.
On a normal day, people can tour the Swan House freely, but it’s closed during September 17 – 28, the dates matching the supposed filming schedule. At the Swan House website, you can check out a three-minute video that captures the inside of the historic mansion which is “traditionally known as one of the most recognized and photographed landmarks in Atlanta.”
CL Casting for “The Idiom” is also looking for dancers, fitting in with The Capitol party:
Trained Dancers – Searching for experienced dancers that can Waltz. Ages 18-60, and all ethnicities. Please submit 3 pictures, height, weight, age, and phone number to Idiom@CLCastingCO.com. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR PARTNER AS WELL!
The Swan House looks like the perfect fit for the sequel — a touch of elegance and slightly avant-garde.
