Hutcherson is seen donning what looks like a Tribute costume, while Claflin bares his abs when preparing for the shooting of the 'Hunger Games' sequel in Atlanta, Georgia.
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" has recently kicked off its filming, and a number of photos taken from the set in Atlanta, Georgia have already made their way out online. The newly-shared set photos feature actors Josh Hutcherson and Sam Claflin who are seen for the first time on the shooting location on Thursday, September 13.
Hutcherson is seen sporting Peeta Mellark's signature bleached blond hair as he steps out of his trailer in a plain white shirt, blue jeans and flip-flops. He later trades the casual outfit with an all-black number which seems to be a Tribute attire.
On the other hand, Claflin who will play Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games" sequel is seen sporting messy haircut and showing off his killer guns in a sleeveless gray shirt. At one point, he's photographed taking off the shirt and flaunting his abs while preparing for filming.
In "Catching Fire", Hutcherson will return as Peeta with Jennifer Lawrence reprising her role as Katniss Everdeen. She comes back home safe with Peeta after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. Being victors means they must turn around and leave their family and close friends and embark on a "Victor's Tour" of the district.
Along the way, Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.
To be directed by Francis Lawrence, the much awaited sequel is set to arrive in theaters Stateside on November 22, 2013.
