Just yesterday we told you that filming for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is moving to Atlanta, Georgia and Hawaii.
Now casting calls in Atlanta have surfaced!
Though the call sheets state these are for a film called “The Idiom,” it’s highly likely that Lionsgate is using a bogus title to prevent too much attention.
