Cassandra Clare delivered quite a slew of movie news regarding the film adaptation of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones on Tuesday.
The first item of news–and perhaps the biggest–is a confirmed starting date for filming.
Filming on City of Bones will begin on August 15. That’s just about five months away.
Yes, that’s an August shooting start date. So there, an actual piece of news. 🙂
As far as casting is concerned, Clare revealed that Constantin is the process of hiring a casting director.
Also Lily Collins (Clary) has some extra input on who will be cast as Simon and she already has a favorite that is also a fan-favorite. Could it be Logan Lerman?
They’re hiring a casting director now to start on the rest of the cast, and Lily has what’s called “meaningful consultation” on the roles of Jace and Simon (meaning she gets to put in her two cents, which only seems fair since she has to kiss them both) — we know she already threw in for Jamie but I will say that she definitely likes someone for Simon that a lot of you all like. Who knows, maybe she can talk him into it. Girl with good taste, our Lily.
Clare will also reveal the new director’s name soon.
And that’s all for now, I run to the airport, but I’ll have a bit more for you later — like the director’s name. 😉
