Lily Collins joins the cast of ‘Writers,’ filming begins next week

Collider is reporting that Lily Collins (Clary) has signed on to star in Writers along with Logan Lerman (a fan-casting favorite for Simon), Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly and Kristen Bell.

Here are the details from Collider:

Kristen Bell, Lily Collins, Logan Lerman, Nat Wolff, Liana Liberato have joined Greg Kinnearand Jennifer Connelly in Josh Boone‘s comedy-drama Writers.  Deadline reports that “the film follows the members of the Borgens family and their love interests over the course of one tumultuous year.”  Kinnear plays Bill Borgens, a famous novelist obsessed with ex-wife (Connelly) even though he’s sleeping with his friend Tricia (Bell), who’s trying to help him get over his ex.  Collins plays Bill’s daughter Samatha, who is being pursued by a fellow writing student (Lerman), and Samantha’s teenage brother (Wolff) is experiencing his first love with Kate (Liberato).  This is how they all became The Borgens Bunch.

Shooting will begin next week in North Carolina.  Boone wrote the script and will make his feature directing debut on the film.

While this news may cause some unrest with Mortal Instruments fans, with filming on Writers set to begin next week it would give plenty of time for Collins to film that movie before filming The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones in the fall, if everything remains on schedule.

Constantin Films wants to begin filming on City of Bones in August of this year, though it is not a set date.
