Russ Bowen has posted another round of information from North Carolina regarding the filming of The Hunger Games.
– The exciting and explosive lake scenes in the arena will be filmed in Asheville
– But it’s in a location no one will have access to which is probably a good idea
– This includes the blowing up the bag of apples scene
– It appears most of the arena scenes will be shot in Asheville as will most of the explosions and fire
– The N. Fork Reservoir in Black Mountain is the site. AVL taking measures to make sure (it’s) protected while filming
– Filming there to occur through June 30
– Work is underway as the main shooting starts on 6/20
