According to 6ABC, Philadelphia will be home to the next big thing being filmed.
The news outlet had a close-up view in Center City overnight as crews were filming for the movie “Audrey’s Children.” You may recognize the film’s lead actress Natalie Dormer, who was one of the stars of the “Hunger Games” movies. The movie is inspired by the true story of revolutionary oncologist Dr. Audrey Evans, who co-founded the original Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia in 1974, the news outlet reported. Additionally, the film also stars New Jersey native Jimmi Simpson, who is known for his role in the series “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.”
This includes Tony Award nominee Fionnula Flanagan, who’ll play Grandma’am, young Coriolanus Snow’s (Tom Blyth) strict grandmother. Years before he would become the tyrannical President of Panem, the 18-year-old is the last hope for his fading lineage, a once-proud family that has fallen from grace in a postwar Capitol. With the 10th annual Hunger Games fast approaching, the young Snow is alarmed when he is assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird (Rachel Zegler), the girl tribute from impoverished District 12. But, after Lucy Gray commands all of Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony, Snow thinks he might be able to turn the odds in their favor. Uniting their instincts for showmanship and newfound political savvy, Snow and Lucy’s race against time to survive will ultimately reveal who is a songbird and who is a snake.
