First filming locations for ‘The Hunger Games’ in North Carolina revealed!


According to Hickory record Hildebran, NC will be one of the first filming locations for the highly anticipated movie The Hunger Games, based on the book by Suzanne Collins.

Henry River Mill village will be the site of filming for the movie “Artemis,” which is a working title for the book “The Hunger Games,” say locals who have been in contact with movie officials.

Filming will take place on Henry River Road, which is a main road running from Interstate 40 to the village and farther on to Advent Crossroads in Catawba County, will be closed at the village, said Doug McNeal, engineer for North Carolina Department of Transportation District 13. He said the portion of the road will close at 6 a.m. May 19 and open at 5 p.m. May 26.

McNeal said the detour around the closed road will be 1.7 miles to get from Henry River Road to Interstate 40. The detour will go from Henry River Road to Costner Road to Old Shelby Road and back to Henry River Road, he said.
