The "Dumb and Dumber" sequel and "The Hunger Games" three-quel (is that a word?) will soon be filming in Atlanta and both projects need folks to work in crew positions.
"Dumb and Dumber To" (note the intentionally incorrect wording) and "Mockingjay," the third in the "Hunger Games" franchise, are among the movies headed our way after an already busy year so far. D&D2 will reunite Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey and will be the third locally filmed movie by the Farrelly brothers, who also shot "Hall Pass" and "The Three Stooges" here.
"Mockingjay" will actually be split into two movies, sort of like the endings of the "Harry Potter" or "Twilight" franchises. Look for Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland and the rest of the Gamers to return to town soon. We're told location scouts have been up in the north Georgia mountains searching for suitable filming locations. Last time, locations included the Swan House, Goat Farm Arts Center, Georgia World Congress Center and Marriott Marquis. Who knows, they might pop up there again.
