According to E!Online the “Hunger Game” actors have been thrown into a training boot camp to get themselves ready for the stunt-intensive film. According to an inside source the cast are getting along very well and film production is set to start sometime this summer.
Leven Rambin, who is playing District 1’s Tribute, Glimmer, has also spoken about her excitement at working on the project and with her actor buddy, Josh Hutcherson!
With just a month left before The Hunger Games begins shooting, an inside Hunger source tells us the entire cast is currently enrolled in physically demanding stunt training!
“The cast mates are all really happy with each other and get along great so far,” our source tells us, regarding the actors who have varying degrees of fame.
And while most of the tributes cast already have serious experience as stunt doubles, everyone is still required to attend training a few days a week, we’re told.
“They have to learn archery, sword fighting, martial arts and the like,” the knowledgeable insider insists. Filming starts in June in North Carolina, do they don’t have too much longer to snap to!
“They want the actors to genuinely know what they are doing,” adds our source, who also says the film will have a “very cool and futuristic feel.”
When we ran into District 1 tribute Glimmer, played by Leven Rambin, at the IWC Schaffhausen presents Peter Lindbergh’s Portofino last week, the actress told us she had to stay mum on the film. But she did say, “I’m so excited to work with Josh Hutcherson, I’ve been friends with him for years.”
Good thing the Tributes are all getting along so far, because our Hunger mole tells us they will most likely be filming all summer long. More at the source.
