NEWS: 'Catching Fire' to film at Clayton County's The Beach in Atlanta (PHOTO)

We previously posted that Clayton County International Park will be one of the filming locations for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. And now, in a new article from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution regarding the economic influence that Hollywood has had on Clayton County, more info on where Catching Fire will be filming is mentioned.
Parts of the second movie in “The Hunger Games” trilogy will be filmed over the next few months at Clayton’s International Park. The production brings with it demand for movie extras, moonlighting gigs for local police and work for local businesses.
“Catching Fire,” the second “Hunger Games” film, will shoot at a man-made water park known as “The Beach” because it was built as the beach volleyball venue for the 1996 Olympics. The park is being transformed into a post-apocalyptic setting for the movie, which is based on a book about children forced to fight to the death for food. Other parts of the movie will be shot in Atlanta and Hawaii.
What do you guys think? Maybe they'll film some of the Arena scenes at "The Beach?" We'll just have to wait and see.
