According to Tumblr user -daylighter, Cassandra Clare said that casting would be done in “about a fortnight,” or two weeks.
“[Cassandra Clare] said that casting for the movie should be decided in about a fortnight, at which point they’re going to start being announced. Next week is casting for Magnus and Isabelle, this week was Luke, and apparently they’ve decided on their Simon but it’s just a matter of sorting schedules and seeing if he can do it.”
If this is true–which it has yet to be confirmed–then they have already settled on an actor for Simon, but just have to make sure he can do it around his schedule.
Also, casting for Luke has been happening this week and next week will be casting for Magnus and Isabelle.
This remains a rumor until confirmed by Clare or Sony Pictures, but it seems to be on target with filming slated to begin on August 15 in Toronto.
But if this is true, the cast will start to be announced in about two weeks. Fourteen days. Very. Soon.
Who do you think has been cast as Simon? Who would you like to see play Luke, Magnus and Isabelle? Sound off in the comments!
