Catching Fire, the second book in The Hunger Games series, will film in Atlanta, Georgia, Celebuzz has confirmed.

The first film was shot on location in North Carolina; now, we can reveal brand-new details on what exactly will be shot in Atlanta.

Sources close to the production tell us various locations in Georgia are currently being looked at for "Victor's Village" in District 12 -- the affluent neighborhood where winners of the Hunger Games live. In the book, the victor is given a luxurious home for winning the Games.

There are only three victors from District 12: Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark and Haymitch. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) live together, while Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) lives on his own.

Katniss' mansion is described as white and clean; Haymitch's mansion has more of a cottage feel with wooden windows.

Atlanta has become a popular filming location for films and TV shows -- What to Expect When You're Expecting, The Vampire Diaries, and The Walking Dead have all been shot there.

In other Hunger Games news, Lionsgate announced last week that Mockingjay, the final book in the trilogy, would be split into two films; the studio also confirmed Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman would be joining the cast of Catching Fire.

And The Hunger Games flick is up for several Teen Choice Awards this Sunday. Take a look at what awards the cast took home at the MTV Movie Awards below:

    I don't remember the houses being described as "white and clean or wooden windows/cottage feel" in Catching Fire. Also, Katniss and Peeta don't live together.
