Following a rumor that development on the film adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s bestselling novel The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones had been halted, Clare, Marlene King and Jamie Campbell Bower clarified that it was definitely not the case.
The film is still in development.
King reassured fans that Constantin Films, who owns the film rights, is the right studio for The Mortal Instruments and that things are looking bright.
After hiring King to rewrite the script to ensure that all the important elements–and characters–were included, it shows that Constantin really cares about putting out a quality film instead of speeding up the process.
Constantin wants to begin filming in August of this year so news could definitely be on the horizon.
But keep in mind that the film process is a long one.
Yes, fans have had to wait. And yes, fans will have to continue to wait until everything falls into place. But hopefully it will all be worth it in the end.
