Moviefone has recognized The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones as one of the most-anticipated book-to-movie adaptations hitting the big screen this year.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
Written By: Cassandra Clare, whose supernatural-romance books have a massive following that spans tweens to adults.
On the Page: Clary Fray (played by Lily Collins) is a New York City teen with a peculiar power — she can see supernatural beings, like the cocky young demon hunter Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower) and other strange creatures that appear out of nowhere. When her mother gets kidnapped, Clary discovers she’s not quite the regular city girl she imagined.
On the Screen: Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Harald Zwart (2010′s “The Karate Kid”), the adaptation boasts an attractive young cast (including an actor the author calls the “hottest man in the world,” Godfrey Gao, as sexy warlock Magnus Bane), appeals to a built-in fan base and hits theaters this summer, Aug. 23, 2013.
