Filming on the next installment of "The Hunger Games" won't begin for another month, but Paul Holehouse already is assessing the risks. Holehouse will fly to Atlanta this week to check for asbestos in an old warehouse — one among many sites that will be used during filming of the "Hunger Games" sequels.
He told the Los Angeles Times that he will also meet with stunt coordinators to review action scenes, plans for pyrotechnics and training for actors to ensure they are prepared to film various fights and chase scenes.
He's not directing or producing the movies. An entertainment risk consultant for Fireman's Fund Insurance Co., which insured "The Hunger Games" and is covering the next two films, he's watching out for the accident or unforeseen delay that can shut down production and cost a big-budget movie $300,000 to $500,000 a day.
"We don't want to have any down times or delays, because that's what kills you in this business," Holehouse said.
