The Mortal Instruments is in ‘Great Hands’ with Constantin Films

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.

And Clare agreed.

Bower, who is attached to play Jace in the adaptation, took to Twitter to calm fans.

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.

      I know ! i’m so excited and not every movie is done within a year. some movies take a few years but i’m sure once it’s shot, it will take them a year or so. maybe we’ll see it on screen sometime in late 2013

    • The Hunger Games is one of those exceptions where the movie gets fast tracked. Hopefully all the time we’re waiting for CoB to be made into a movie will be worth it.
