Pre-production

On July 10, 2012, Lionsgate announced that novel Mockingjay will be split into two parts, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is set to be released on November 21, 2014, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 on November 20, 2015.[14] On November 1, 2012, it was confirmed that Francis Lawrence, the director of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, will return to direct the both final parts in the series.[15] On December 6, 2012, Danny Strong announced that he will be writing the third and fourth films.[16] On February 15, 2013, Lionsgate confirmed Strong's script for Part 1, giving him permission to write Part 2.[17] The film's production began on September 16, 2013 in Boston, Atlanta and Los Angeles.[18] Nina Jacobson has revealed that Peter Craig was also hired to write the adaptations.[19]

Casting

On August 26, 2013, it was announced that actress Stef Dawson had joined the cast to portray Annie Cresta.[4] Lionsgate announced on September 13, 2013 that Julianne Moore joined the cast to play president Alma Coin.[3] Other roles cast that month include Commander Lyme, Commander Paylor, Boggs, Castor, and Pollux, who will be portrayed by Lily Rabe, Patina Miller, Mahershala Ali, Wes Chatham, and Elden Henson, respectively.[7][8][9][10] During this time, there was also a casting call for extras.[20]

Filming

The shooting of the film began on September 23, 2013 in Atlanta; both parts are filming back-to-back.[21] In October 2013, filming took place in Rockmart, Georgia.[22] After taking a break to promote The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, filming resumed on December 2, 2013. On December 14, 2013 shooting was being held at Marriott Marquis in Atlanta.[23] On December 18, shooting began at Caldwell Tanks in Newnan, Georgia.[24]

Philip Seymour Hoffman, the actor who portrays Plutarch Heavensbee, died February 2, 2014. At the time of his death, he had completed filming his scenes for Part 1, and had a week left of shooting for Part 2. Lionsgate released a statement stating that due to the majority of Hoffman’s scenes being completed, the release date for Part 2 will not be affected.[25][26] It was later announced that Hoffman will be digitally recreated for a major scene that included his character, one that Hoffman had left to shoot at the time of his death.[27][28]
