Fans should be cautioned that this information is not 100 % correct unless confirmed by Screen Gems, Constantin Film or Unique Pictures. But, with that said it seems to reflect the information we have previously received but with a little more detail.
Casting director Stephanie Corsalini Ligorner has quite the task ahead of her.
‘City of Bones’ will begin filming on August 15 in Toronto and New York and is slated for an August 23, 2013 theatrical release.
