Ummm... Finally! After months of director changes and casting announcements, Catching Fire, the second installment in The Hunger Games franchise, began filming on Monday.

The film will be led by director Francis Lawrence, who joins the cast and crew near Atlanta, Georgia for the first few weeks of shooting. Next, the group will move onto Hawaii to wrap up filming, which will likely happen in December.

Original cast members like Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Elizabeth Banks are joined this time around by new castmates like Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone, to name a few. What's interesting, though, is that Lionsgate has yet to announce some of the minor roles in the film, so hopefully we'll be learning about those within the next few weeks!

Although filming has begun, we sadly have to wait until November 2013 to check the movie out. HELP!!!

Who are some of your fave new cast members?!
