The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has moved away from the Georgia World Congress Center this week to film at the Swan House for the Capitol party scene. According to OLV, “the shoot will include some custom-made costumes for the party goers, including a suit made out of bricks.” Check out the source for a pic of some of the set additions to the Swan House.

Elizabeth Banks is in town filming with the rest of the cast, including Woody Harrelson and Donald Sutherland (who went to the Atlanta Arts Festival) as she tweeted this teaser pic of “Effie’s” trailer. ‪ ‬

— Also, cast members Alan Ritchson (who is extremely good looking — go ahead, Google!) and Lynn Cohen were spotted at Cucina Asellina late last week. Apparently Alan was very nice and chatted up the staff about living in LA and being in Atlanta for filming while that afternoon Lynn Cohen dined with her husband, sipping pinot grigio and noshing on a margherita pizza and meat balls.

— Earlier this week former Disney star Ashley Tisdale visited her pal Selena Gomez on the set of The Getaway, which Gomez is co-starring in with Ethan Hawke in a remake of the Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw film. The production should be here through Saturday, if not longer.

— Selena has also been spotted and snapped at the airport shuttling in and out of Atlanta.

— I’ve had a few people asking me what has been downtown around the W recently, and I’m pretty sure it’s Scary Movie 5. The helicopters and the Christmas-fied W seem to be for their benefit. As for whether Lindsay Lohan will be back after her recent arrest, well, TBD!
