‘The Hunger Games’ wraps shooting in North Carolina

The movie has completed filming

‘The Hunger Games’ is one step closer to being complete as filming in North Carolina has wrapped up.

Principal photography on the film was completed on Saturday and now the film will be off to post production for editors to begin piecing the film together.

The film was originally hoped to be a mid-budget film, but because the book series that the film is based on has become so insanely popular the budget has sky rocketed into the $100 million range.

Although the book series is really targeted towards a younger audience, presumable the same audience that is madly in love with the ‘Twilight’ series, Lionsgate is targeting all ages, not just teenagers.

‘The Hunger Games’ stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, and Woody Harrelson and is set to hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
