NEWS: 'Catching Fire' approved to film at Clayton County International Park in Jonesboro, GA (PHOTO)

Clayton News Daily is reporting that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been granted the approval to film at Clayton County International Park in Jonesboro, GA in late October-November.
The Clayton County Board of Commissioners unanimously gave producers of the “Hunger Games” sequel, “Catching Fire,” the green light Tuesday to film some scenes from at Clayton County International Park this fall. 
A location agreement between the county and Project GGX Productions, Inc. states the movie to be filmed is called “The Idiom.” 
… The agreement allows the production company to begin entering the park — beginning this week — to prepare it for filming. The agreement shows the production company will be filming scenes in the park several times throughout late October and November.
That schedule will likely limit residents’ access to some of the park and facilities located inside of it, including the J. Charley Griswell Senior Center, the Clayton County Tennis Complex and Muscle Beach gym. 
The county will be paid $80,000 to allow “Catching Fire” scenes to be filmed in the park, according to the agreement. Project GGX will also employ off-duty police to provide security, and it will pay the officers $45 per hour for their time. The agreement calls on the production company to pay the county $75 per hour to have a Clayton County Water Authority employee drain and re-fill one of the lakes in the park.
