The Hunger Games: Mockingjay cast and crew have wrapped shooting in Atlanta and will continue filming in Berlin and Paris.
Battle scenes will take place at the famous Tempelhof Airport in Berlin, home of the annual indie rock festival. This creepy former airfield and terminal includes immigration booths, baggage conveyor belts and old-school departure boards.
And dedicated Hunger Games fans might fancy a trip to the German capital this weekend, with suggestions that movie extras will be needed in their droves. Casting agency Agentur Filmgesichter has sent out a call for 1,000 extras “for the filming of a major international Hollywood cinema film”, and although Mockingjay is not mentioned by name, the timing, location and scale point to only one production.
The casting takes place on Saturday 26 April in Berlin at the Delphi Film Theatre, near the Mockingjay shooting location, and hopefuls should expect to do one to three days of shooting.
Casting agents are mainly looking for male extras of various nationalities, including Thai, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Japanese, Arab, southern European, South American and those of African descent. However, women can also apply. Extras must be between 18 to 65 years old. See here for more details.
The next part of the Hunger Games trilogy will venture to other districts and landscapes. “We are going to new places,” explained Lionsgate production president Erik Feig to Variety. “No one’s ever been to District 13, and we have not really been in much of the Capitol, so creating that is the really fun stuff.” A Paris apartment complex will double for different areas of the Capitol during an uprising.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 goes on release around the world between 19 and 21 November
