Some Updates on Hunger Games Filming in Hildebran and Shelby, NC

The Hickory Daily Record, put up a new story on filming that will take place in the Henry River Mill Village from May 23- 25th.

Dingy clothes hang on a clothesline of an empty home. Windows of the houses along the road are boarded up with plywood. What appears to be an animal pen has been built against the side of one of the houses that fronts the road, and what looks like a rabbit hutch sits around back. Rusted farm equipment also is scattered around the property.

And it appears the old mill store is being transformed to become the site of the bakery...

...Brand Lingerfelt, chief of Icard Township Fire/Rescue, said filming at the site is supposed to start Monday and finish Wednesday. He said the road closed around noon Friday, except to emergency vehicles. But come Monday, the section of road at the village will even be closed to those, he said.
...Hilton said he was told that during filming, Henry River Road at the village will be covered with dirt

The majority of the filming at the village will likely take place outside. Kristine Hilton said crews have been working to put a new front on the old general store — it has an awning and the windows have been replaced — but she said it’s her understanding that improvements aren’t being made to the inside of the structures. The word “Pastries” is now on the building.

So far, there have been no reported sightings of actors, and that might be the case throughout filming at the site. Folks who attempt to stop and linger near the site are told to keep moving. Security guards — off-duty officers with the Burke County Sheriff’s Office — are working at the location.Numerous local people say plans call for a structure in the village to be blown up.

Lingerfelt said an explosion will be simulated.

“There won’t be explosives used,” Lingerfelt said. “It’s all air pressure.”

Lingerfelt said crews have been testing, simulating an explosion for several weeks.
We have heard mention of an explosion at the site previously, and now we have confirmation of that report. Our best guess is that they may be filming a flashback scene of the mine explosion that killed Katniss and Gale's father.

Here is a new video from Johannafana reader of The Hob, who took a recent trip through the Village.
