It was awesome. We shot in a place called Asheville, which is like beautiful, beautiful forests. And then part of it we shot all the reaping stuff, which was just crazy, because the reaping in the book and in the script is such an emotional thing for everyone. It really did feel like that when we were shooting it. You know, the thought of young kids going off into this scary kind of world was pretty crazy.”
