Mockingjay to Start Filming in July?

Ah yes, Russ Bowen. In case you are unfamiliar, Russ is a reporter who sometimes finds out insider info concerning The Hunger Games franchise. Obviously, nothing he tweets is official so treat any of this information with a grain of salt.

Mockingjay shooting in July - If this is true, it means casting will start very soon. However, we are in the middle of the Catching Fire marketing campaign and in the months during apparent shooting, Lionsgate will be wrapped up in the Catching Fire press tour. So many questions, but I guess we will have to be patient and see what Lionsgate's plans truly are.

Catching Fire: 4 more weeks and over budget - I would think it's probable that the production is over budget. They are not doing pickups, they are getting shots that they did not get to last time they filmed in Hawaii. Also, 2 WEEKS IN LA?! That's a dream come true for us since we live in the L.A. area. I'd also like to assume that they would be shooting scenes shot in a sound stage and/or green screen. If this is true, this is exciting news! Can't wait to see what ends up happening with the Catching Fire production schedule.

Thoughts on these new rumors?
