Report: Harald Zwart no longer attached to direct ‘City of Ashes’

20140520-191018-69018054.jpg

While it’s been quiet on the City of Ashes movie front, a new report has surfaced indicating that Harald Zwart, who directed The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, will not be directing the sequel.

Zwart had previously been signed on to direct The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes before the project was delayed.

Here’s what ScienceFiction.com is reporting:

While the studio has made no official announcements, as of this time Zwart stated that “The studio is still certain that they will make this movie, but it’s not me who directs it. I will focus on other projects in the future. Shadow Hunters was a great experience and it gave me a good window to show off.”

Now, this is all speculation until an official announcement from Sony Pictures is made. But it’s nice to hear that it sounds like the studio is still moving forward with the project.

Who would you like to see direct City of Ashes?

The Taiwanese-Canadian star also revealed that he will be flying to the US after filming concludes, to begin the sequel to last year’s “The Mortal Instrument: City of Bones”.

Aside from reprising his role as Magnus Bane for the second instalment, “The Mortal Instrument: City of Ashes”, the actor also revealed that he has received other offers from other Hollywood production, and expressed his hopes to be able to be involved in as many as them.

Keep in mind that nothing is confirmed. This is merely a report. But regardless, it’s exciting to hear anything about City of Ashes!

Possibility of an ‘Infernal Devices’ television show?

 Constantin Film, who owns the rights to The Mortal Instruments also holds the rights to Cassandra Clare’s prequel series The Infernal Devices.

Back in April, Constantin Film decided to move forward with The Infernal Devices film hiring screenwriter Stephanie Sanditz to pen the Clockwork Angel script.

But it seems as if Infernal Devices might possibly be headed to the small screen instead, as Cassandra Clare addressed a question on Twitter relating to the subject.

A television show would give more time to explore the characters and the story (i.e. 22 hours per season), but there is also the downside of producers taking independent liberties on where the show would be going that deviate or extend upon the source material (i.e. The Vampire Diaries.)

What do you think about the possibility of an Infernal Devices television show? Do you prefer it to a movie? Would you prefer something like an HBO-produced Game of Thrones or CW-produced The Vampire Diaries? Sound off in the comments!

Cassandra Clare talks new wave of readers – ‘It’s like I’ve time traveled back to 2007′ (Exclusive)

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has officially hit stores and the web today in the U.S. (Buy it now!) With the film’s release there’s been hundreds of thousands of new readers that have fallen in love with Cassandra Clare’s epic world.

Last week, we spoke to Clare about the new readership gained from the film adaptation, which includes interacting with new fans discovering and dealing with the infamous plot twist at the end of City of Bones.

“It makes me feel like I time traveled back to 2007, when City of Bones was released and I just got email after email after email from people being like, ‘They can’t be related, they can’t be related, they can’t.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, here we go again,’” Clare laughed. “There’s just a whole new wave of people reading City of Bones and having the exact same reaction. And nothing in the movie is really unlike the plot so I’m like, ‘You’re just going to have to read the second book or wait to see — hopefully see — the second movie.’”

Clare said that the movie has been great publicity for her books as it has attracted a wider audience that might not have found her series. There’s also been a wide range of audiences, which has been the norm for her fandom.

“It’s a whole wave of new readers that are slightly outside the realm of my previous readers,” Clare said. “I’ve gotten a lot more emails from younger kids and from older readers. That’s one of the things about having a movie is it kind of expands out from your initial fan base because books are shelved in sections, and a lot of books are in Young Adult. But movies aren’t like that. You get younger people and older people because the movie isn’t particularly targeted to a specific age group.”

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is now available to purchase on Blu-Ray combo pack and DVD.
