No Rest For Jennifer Lawrence! The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 To Begin Filming In September
The adaptation of the final book of The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, will begin filming this year in September, with the book split into two parts, one released in 2014 and one in 2015 according to reports.
The swift turn around means that Jennifer Lawrence will be back working hard as Katniss Everdeen before the rest of us have even seen the turbulent tribute take on the corruption of the Capitol once more in Catching Fire, which is scheduled for release on 22 November.

“THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 1 is scheduled to begin production September 16th with locations in Atlanta and Boston,” Production Weekly tweeted, revealing the news that Jen will barely have time to put down her bow and arrow in 2013.
Both Mockingjay instalments will be directed by Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence – who also directed the upcoming Catching Fire.
Jen will appear alongside co-stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone and Elizabeth Banks in the movie.
