The official (and temporary) synopsis for film adaptation of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, starring Lily Collins (Clary Fray) and Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace Wayland) was unveiled at the American Film Market, it was announced today by Collider.
CLARY FRAY (Lily Collins) is an ordinary Brooklyn teenager until the night she meets the mysteriously tattooed JACE, who turns out to be a half-angel warrior known as a Shadowhunter. When Clary finds out her mother JOCELYN has been abducted, she desperately hopes Jace will be able to help. After a whirling golden portal transports her across time and space in a heartbeat, Clary realizes she too has the powers of the Shadowhunters. But can she harness them in time to save her mother?
Clary, Jace and their fellow Shadowhunters endure one breathtaking battle after another against vampire, warlocks and demons—only to discover Jocelyn hid a terrible secret from the fiercest warrior of all: VALENTINE. Cast out from the world of Shadowhunters, Valentine abducted Jocelyn believing she had a powerful tool known as the Mortal Cup. Using her newfound gifts, Clary finds the Cup, only to be brutally betrayed and forced to relinquish it.
Still reeling from this setback and racing to save Jocelyn before it’s too late, Clary finds herself caught in a battle between forces she barely understands. Based on the best-selling series by Cassandra Clare, THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES is a magnificent urban fantasy rich in detail and suspense, about a girl’s journey to the darkest corners of the underworld to save those she loves.
It also looks as if The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones will in fact be shot in 3D, as director Scott Charles Stewart hinted at back in May.
Finally, we’ve got the official synopsis for the feature film adaptation of the popular teen book series The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. The 3D film stars Lily Collins as a girl who is transported to another world when she meets a mysterious half-angel known as a Shadowhunter.
Good to see Sony Pictures and Screen Gems are finally getting started on production of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Could casting news soon follow in the coming weeks?
This synopsis is the first official one that was released. It is likely that there will be an edited one as the script hasn’t been turned into the studio yet. It will likely fluctuate throughout the production process.
