'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Photo Reveals Jennifer Lawrence on Set in ParisNick Romano |
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1' is currently in the middle of production, with franchise star Jennifer Lawrence spotted on set with director Francis Lawrence in Paris. While details surrounding the scene in question are unknown, we have your latest look at the action taking place behind the scenes.
Jennifer Lawrence reprises her role of Katniss Everdeen, the "Girl on Fire" from the poverty-stricken District 12 who won the Hunger Games against all odds. Following the events of 'Catching Fire,' she was seen being extracted from the gladiatorial arena, having been enlisted for the second year in a row, and whisked off to District 13, once thought to be destroyed during the story's civil war and is now the acting base for the rebels.
Despite the colorful wardrobe shown off in the latest behind-the-scenes snapshot, details of the scene being shot are unknown. However, Lionsgate Production President Erik Feig told Variety earlier this year that the studio booked big apartment spaces in Paris to shoot some of the film's battle scenes. Be wary of spoilers for readers, but fans of the books know that there are two prominent battle scenes in the final installment -- the first, and most likely to be included in 'Part 1,' takes place in District 2 where an uprising against the Capitol turns sour and Katniss is forced to reveal herself to save the people. The other prolonged sequence takes place in the second half of the novel as Katniss and her team infiltrates the Capitol. As the films are being filmed back to back, with Berlin reserved to film additional battle scenes, either one could be a safe bet.
'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1' and 'Part 2' have been bulking up its cast with returning stars Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland and Sam Claflin, as well as newcomers Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Stef Dawson, Evan Ross, Gwendoline Christie, Patina Miller, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson, Robert Knepper, Michelle Forbes and Eugenie Bondurant. The first one will hit theaters this November 21, while the second will debut November 20, 2015.
