**New Updates! - April 2013**

A new Catching Fire trailer has been released! Check it out below along with more news about Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games out in theaters this November.

Filming for this movie is over. The movie filmed for 2 weeks more than slotted in Hawaii. It has also reportedly gone over budget. This could be a good thing because it means the production company is willing to put in the money to make the movie great.

The movie is now in post-production. That means that the crew is working on editing and adding special effects to put the whole thing together.

Casting calls for extras are over for this sequel. Keep your ears open for casting and filming for Mockingjay coming soon. Look below for links and info.

Fans anxious to hear news about the second movie in the Hunger Games series have come to the right place. Below is movie news, casting and filming updates, fantasy cast lists, and much more.

The series by Suzanne Collins has been a phenomenal hit worldwide and the popularity of the series is going to explode even more with the movie editions. The series has now reached the acclaim of other popular young adult series like Harry Potter and Twilight.

The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where the Capitol controls its 12 Districts (formerly North America) by making two teenage tributes from each District fight to the death in what is known as the Hunger Games. The action centers around the main character, Katniss Everdeen, a girl who volunteers for the Hunger Games in place of her sister.

Movie News and Tidbits

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games 2) is scheduled to be released in theaters November 22, 2013.

The film is currently filming in Atlanta, GA and in Hawaii.

There is a possibility that the Hunger Games may come out in four films rather than three. That means there is no guarantee that the Catching Fire movie is going to end at the same spot as the book. Mockingjay may not be split into two movies. It may be that Catching Fire and Mockingjay will become three parts instead of two.

**Update** Mockingjay Part 1 will be in theaters November 21, 2014 and Mockingjay Part 2 will be November 20, 2015.


Casting and Filming Updates

***NEW Updates***

  • There are now rumors that the main sound stage for the movie will be moving to Atlanta, GA. That means some filming will be done there instead of North Carolina.
  • A production report for the movie has Wilmington, NC listed as the location.
  • Parts of the movie may be filmed on the Hawaiian island Kauai. All of the filming locations have not been set.
  • Casting for co-starring and supporting roles is now underway in Los Angeles.
  • Extras will be cast in Atlanta, GA and possibly Wilmingtion, NC closer to filming in September.
  • Extras for Hawaii will be needed for November 2012.
  • The working title for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is "The Idiom" (formerly "Artemis 2"). Basically, it is a ruse to keep filming information as secret as possible.
  • Michael Arndt (writer of Toy Story 3) is rewriting the screenplay draft of Catching Fire written by Simon Beaufoy.
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the part of Plutarch Heavensbee.
  • Amanda Plummer has been cast as Wiress and Latarsha Rose has been cast as Portia.
  • Lynn Cohen has been cast as Mags.
  • Meta Golding will be playing Enobaria.
  • Tony Shalhoub (Monk) is rumored to be cast as Beetee.
  • Jena Malone (Sucker Punch and Hatfields & McCoys) has been cast in the part of Johanna Mason.
  • There are rumors that the casting for Finnick is down to the final three: Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund. Robert Pattinson will not be Finnick. There are also rumors that they are looking at unknown actors for the part as well. Grant Gustin (Glee) may have been cast.
  • **New rumors about Finnick: Update - July 29, 2012 Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman) may have the part instead.

Filming Information

  • Gary Ross will not be returning as the director for Catching Fire because of timing conflicts. Francis Lawrence has been chosen as his replacement for the Hunger Games sequel. He directed I Am Legend, Constantine, and Water for Elephants.
  • The screenplay is being written by Simon Beaufoy and is currently in the works. Beaufoy wrote Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours.
  • There were no open auditions for the principal characters in the Hunger Games movie. Catching Fire and Mockingjay will probably be similar. There are rumors that casting for main characters like Finnick and Johanna is already underway.
  • Extras casting was done on location in North Carolina for the first movie. Casting calls were held in the Cleveland Mall in Shelby, NC. Extras casting for Catching Fire will also be done on location as well.
  • Filming is set to begin in September 2012.
  • Some of the actors, mainly Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss), may begin training as early as July 2012.

How to Be Cast as an Extra in the Movie

First off, don't get your hopes up about playing a major character. There are top actors and actresses in Hollywood who are fighting to get parts.

To get a speaking role, you will have to have an agent. That means having expensive head shots, acting resume, and the whole nine yards. So unless you are planning to be a professional actor, it probably isn't going to happen.

The good news is that you definitely have a shot at being an extra in the movie. The studio will need lots of people to play extras in the movies.

Here is what you must know to get a part as an extra in the movie:

  • They are mainly going to be looking for local people. This is because they can count on those people to be around and dependable when it is time to shoot. If you can definitely commit to being in the area during the filming, you can also be considered for a part.
  • Filming is likely to take place during school or work hours. You will have to be able to get out of any other obligations to be an extra.
  • You will need to register with the agency who will be casting the extras. (Check the links below for casting call updates).
  • If you are under 18, you will need an adult with you and if you are cast, you will have to get a work permit for the state it is filming in.
  • Taking along a good picture of yourself may help to get cast because extras are typically chosen based on a certain look.

Remember - Thousands of people are likely to audition to be extras and the production company may only need hundreds. Also, the extras will be picked based on having a certain look and criteria that is needed for specific scenes. You may not have a particular appearance that is needed for the movie.

Don't be too heartbroken if you aren't chosen. If being an extra or acting is something you are really interested in, keep pursuing it. There are other movies and you can always take acting classes or look into your local theater.


Catching Fire Story Summary

**Spoiler Alert**

After winning the Hunger Games by forcing the Capitol to allow them both to live, Katniss and Peeta are back in District 12 where life is much different for them. They live in mansions in "Victor's Village" and are both rich now. Food is no longer in short supply for their families.

But life is definitely not perfect for Katniss. She and Peeta have to go on a Victory Tour through all of Panem and must become mentors for tributes in future Hunger Games. So she will remain the Capitol's puppet for the rest of her life.

Not only that, but President Snow has threatened Katniss and her family because of the berry incident. He comes to see Katniss and tells her that some of the districts are becoming rebellious. He tasks her with making sure the people of Panem believe that her actions in the games were fueled by love and not rebellion against the Capitol.

That means she must keep pretending to be in love with Peeta or her friends and family will die. It also means that she will keep hurting her friend Gale as she tries to sort through the feelings she has for him and what she feels for Peeta.

Every 25 years, a particularly brutal Games are planned. The 75th Hunger Games are going to take place soon after Katniss returns from the Victory Tour. As the nation watches, it is announced that the tributes for the Games will be drawn from previous winners.

Katniss and Peeta will have to fight in the Hunger Games again. Who will come out alive this time?

What if you have an agent and went to acting school and have been in commercials ? I've also modeled since I turned 15. And I am 21 now. I want to audition for Johanna. I don't care that there are already going on my talent should be considered so I'm going to try. I JUST NEED TO KnoW WHERE TO GO!! Please help me out. Plus I'm a perfect fit for the part:)

cocopreme 4 years ago from Far, far away Author

Amanda Thomas - If you have an agent, your agent will have to be the one to get in touch with the casting people. The auditions for Johanna are very likely going to be done in secret, so there won't be any open calls. There is a casting call link above that has addresses for the casting agencies and the production companies involved in the movies. Have your agent get busy if you want to give it a shot.

I have always wanted to get into acting, but i don't have any experience. I would like to be an extra for this movie but I don't have an agent, and don't know if we can afford one.

laxaroni - It hasn't been announced yet. Part of the movie may be filmed there.

cocopreme 4 years ago from Far, far away Author

Samantha - To be an extra, you don't need an agent. If you really want to be in movies, search for open casting calls for extras in your area. Parts of Catching Fire may or may not be filmed in North Carolina. It hasn't been announced yet.

i want to b an extra but do u hav to have a resume and everything professional? and is it possible to audition for one of the 24 tributes who die at the very beginning or does that require professional acting?

I really want to audition for an extra, but i don't now how. I don't know where it is, and i don't got an agent. I am 12 years old and i have been on theatre before, if that helps. And i have been searching all over the internet for how to audition for an extra. But i don't live in USA. I live in Norway, and that is a big probleme isn't it??

faith 4 years ago

u don't hav to hav an agent to be an extra i was in the hunger games and that was before i got my agent and also u hav to realize what u auditioning for its not easy when we filmed it was burning hot and people passed out and had to go to the emergency room

cocopreme profile image

cocopreme 4 years ago from Far, far away Author

rueforevs - The tributes will more than likely be people who already have acting experience. To be an extra you typically don't need a resume or experience.

Heather Byrge - Here are some resources for finding an agent: and Be wary of people asking for money up front. Professional pictures will cost money, though.

Kristin - If you want to be an extra in Catching Fire, you will need to live in the US or be able to be at the filming location during the entire filming. If you want to be an extra in any movie, check for local casting calls for extras in Norway.

faith - You are right. Being an extra isn't easy, and it definitely isn't all glamorous.

I've got an agent, I've been acting for a few years now and i travel to most of these places anyway in the summer. I really wanna be an extra, but what commitments are there?

cocopreme profile image

cocopreme 4 years ago from Far, far away Author

Hailey - You would have to be able to commit to filming during all the scenes they might need you for. It might just be a few days, but it could potentially be several weeks depending on what part and what the need is.

I really want to be in the movie, I have done lots of work with the National Institute of Dramatic Arts and have appeared in many commercials, television shows and catalogues, I really want to try for the part of leevy except there is only one problem... I live in Australia but I really want the role really really want it do you have any tips on how to get it, I have contacted lionsgate already, is there anybody else I can contact?? If so please tell me who and where to get the information to contact them :) thanks

smiley 4 years ago

I really want to be in this movie. I love the books and I love the characters. Makes me sad though that there is no open audition for Johanna. I know they want someone who has previously acted and such but they are going to miss out on maybe finding someone new. Its going to be really irritating to see someone like Emma Stone (or a big name) who has had an amazing year with acting roles, take the Johanna role away from someone who is new to the business but is just as good. Either way good luck to those that will play the new tributes!:)

smiley - Sadly, Hollywood isn't very fair and it is hard for new people to get into movies. You are right. There are plenty of talented people out there who won't get a chance. Hopefully, they will find someone very talented who fits the part well. May the odds be ever in their favor!

Claire - If part of Catching Fire is going to be filmed in the same place, it will help to live in NC. They want locals for extras. But the filming location for the movie hasn't been decided yet. So keep your ears open. You have plenty of time to follow your dream if you want to be an actress. You're right, you don't have to be serious at 13. Just have fun with it till you get a little older.

Hi, I've been looking for auditions for Catching fire on the Internet, but nothing new comes up. I am 11 years old, and don't have an agent or anything. However, I do have a lot of experience in acting and have been leads in multiple plays. I'm looking into being an extra or maybe Leevy or another small part in the movie. I understand you will be posting any info here, but I heard that the auditions have already ended. Please let me know if that is really true, if I would be considered for a part in the movie, and where and when the auditors will be held. Thank you so much for any help.

Ashlyn H. - Auditions for extras haven't happened yet, so don't worry. It's very likely that auditions for speaking parts are going to be done secretly. So, notices for them won't be posted. Extras auditions won't happen until closer to filming in the fall, so just keep checking.

Based on the book they will be needing A lot of extras for Catching Fire. The Victory tour stops through several new areas and of course they spend a good bit of time in the Capitol for this one as well. Keep your eyes posted for open extra calls

Amanda 4 years ago

Yes, I am one more of those people who want to be cast in The Hunger Games. Annie Cresta. I don't have any experience with actual movies, but I have done a lot of acting. There is no way to audition for a main role without an agent, right? And to actually audition if you have an agent you have to go to a place or send in information and an audition reel? I don't know any of this stuff and I have been looking but cannot find anything to help me with it. And yes, I do realize that even if I did manage to find an agent and did audition I wouldn't be cast because I have no connections and no on-screen experience.

So I live in FL, but I might go stay with my uncle up in NC to try to be an extra. You said you need to get with an agency for casting extras? Where can I sign up for that?

Ashlyn H. 4 years ago

Thanks, cocopreme, for your help. I really appreciate it. I'll keep looking and searching for more info.

cocopreme 4 years ago from Far, far away Author

@ recappers delight - I know what you mean! I wish that they had realized what a big hit it was going to be and started filming earlier.

@ sierra h - The tributes are more than likely going to be cast in a closed audition. The extra casting call info will probably come out later in the summer. I'll post something as soon as I hear more.

@ Renee - More information for extras should be out later in the summer when filming locations have been set. That's as much as I can tell you now. Sorry.

@ Rebecca - They probably will need a lot of extras for the movie. Probably more so than the first movie. I check for filming updates regularly. As soon as I hear something, I'll post it.

@ Amanda - You are right about it all. You would have to have an agent and head shots and all of the works. Sadly, Hollywood is all about the connections. If you are serious about being an actress, work on building up some credentials like local films or commercials. Most famous actors started out with commercials and built their way up. Very few landed a big role right at the start.

@ Casey - I would recommend taking acting classes and getting involved in local theater. You can also start looking in the yellow pages for agents close to you and search Craig's list and the newspaper for local acting jobs (watch out for scams!). Eventually to do anything in film you will have to have head shots, which can be expensive.

@ Deltron - What will likely happen is the company in charge of extras will do an open casting call in someplace like a mall. You will be able to sign up to audition when it is announced or maybe beforehand. They may, may have very small speaking roles that an extra can fill. Like one line speaking parts at most. No guarantees with that, though.

@ Ashlyn H. - You're welcome! When I hear something, I'll post it here.

I love the Hunger Games and can't wait for Catching Fire! I used to act when I was younger and I loved it, I just never have the chance to do it anymore. I live in NC and I'm 24 (but I've been told I look a lot lot lot younger) so I'd love to be an extra, but I don't think I'd have any success because of my body type (I'm obese and I'm not exaggerating). Good luck to everybody else, though....

dear ashlen h.,

if you want to be in the movie u will have to try to be in many shows and movies. i understand that it may be hard to get into one so you can also join an acting school or a talent agent. they will have a coarse for you to take called screen testing ware u will be filmed by a camera. they will be testing photo genetic and how well u don't pay attenchen to the camera. i have been in many moovies and am also going to be in catching fire.some great talent agents are lisa maile.(my talent agent) FYI never go on the internet for auditions it is a total scam and they will take money from u yep i remember my first scam your talent agent will get you an audition and if you get in they will onley take a persentige of your money thet u agree on before u audition.good luk and i will see u on set if u make i will see u later,



p.s. thare was a whole line of smileies until i had to take them of frowny face frowny face. sorry about the spelling.

Hi, I'm 16 years old and I would love to be an extra in "Catching Fire" I have some experience with acting, but not a whole lot. I loved "The Hunger Games" and also, I love "Catching Fire" I live in Ga and was wondering where the additions are going to take place. I read they're going to be in N.C. But I don't know if that's true. I would love to gain more experience as to acting.

I would LOVE to be an extra in "Catching Fire". I have watched the first movie and loved it. I have read all 3 books and can't wait for the release of the second movie. I Truly want to be in it. I am retired, 62 yrs old, in good health and can be anywhere I am needed anytime.

Larry Fox 4 years ago

I wanted you to know that I live about 20 miles from the Henry River location where some of the "Hunger Games" scenes were filmed, as District 12. I have visited this location recently and was actually "inside" of the house which was used as Katniss's home. I loved the sight and would LOVE to be an extra in "Catching Fire". If I were only seen for a second, I would be content with that. Please let me know where and when the auditions will begin for extras. Thank you.

Hi, I'm 13 and would love to be an extra for the second movie of the Hunger Games trilogy Catching Fire. I loved the Hunger Games movie so much that I had to see the movie twice and I finished the book on two days! I can't wait to see the Catching Fire but what would make it even more amazing is being an extra. I have never acted in a movie or in commercials , but I practice acting every day and have acted in school plays! I also like modeling, the thing is, is that I don't have and agent and am not part of any agency!:'( I live in California, orange county, which is only like an hour away from Las Angeles and would not be that big of a hassle. If you could comment on how I could get an agent or even audition and where they would be that would be wonderful! Even trying out to be in the movie and not being an extra would still be life changing!

Everyone - Filming is over for Catching Fire. If you didn't get a chance to be an extra, you still have a chance for Mockingjay Part 1 and 2. It will be several months before filming begins, but be sure to keep your ears peeled for any casting news. If you want to pursue acting, look into acting lessons and plays in your local area to get started. Good luck!
