The North Carolina site where "The Hunger Games' was filmed is being sold.
The Hickory Daily Record reports that the SyFy show "Hollywood Treasures" has sent out a release saying it has acquired Henry River Mill Village. The release also reminds people of its June 5 show that will feature the village, which is in eastern Burke County near Hildebran.
According to the release, the property will be auctioned by sealed bid through Los Angeles-based Profiles in History with a deadline of July 31. The asking price is $1.4 million.
Property owner Wade Shepherd said the show has 90 days to sell the property but he also retains the right to sell it. Shepherd also says he wants whoever buys the property to preserve it.
In April, some overzealous fans of the movie were stealing pieces of the building in Burke County where filming was done last summer.
Since the movie opened this spring, hundreds of people have visited the site to take pictures. The property owner said he's had to replace boards on two of the buildings where filming was done.
