Gary Ross is currently in Shelby, North Carolina, where he is prepping for his upcoming Suzanne Collins' adaptation The Hunger Games. A new photo has arrived from the set, which offers a peek at District 12, the hometown of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Check it out below.
Local Shelby radio DJ Noel Manning had this to say about the District 12 set being constructed in his hometown.
"It's huge. It's huge! I think the fact that you've got a movie based on the book with such an incredible following is one thing. Any town that lands the opportunity to have part of the film shot in that location is pretty amazing. (This is) where The Hunger Games begin. That's where the activity begins so when you see behind us something that says District 12, you realize, wow, OK, this is a major part of the film right here in Shelby."
