Filming on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is set to begin in less than a month and there are plenty of casting announcements on the horizon.
Lily Collins (Clary), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace), Robert Sheehan (Simon), Jemima West (Isabelle), Kevin Durand (Pangborn) and Robert Maillet (Blackwell) are the only confirmed cast members at this time.
Cassandra Clare has revealed that Alec is cast, but his identity remains a secret due to scheduling issues. Jocelyn is also cast and the studio is working out her schedule.
One role that has been interactive with fans have been some of the actors who auditioned for the role of Magnus Bane.
It’s been a role that has been documented for the past couple of months, but now it looks like we have our Magnus, and, like our Alec, his identity remains a secret.
According to a fan that attended a signing in Rhinebeck, N.Y. on July 15, author Sarah Rees Brennan, a friend of Clare, revealed to those in attendance that not only has Magnus been cast but that he is “hot.”
And she told us OVER AND OVER AND OVER how HOT the guy being cast for Magnus was. Obviously she couldn’t tell who it was!
Casting announcements should be plentiful in the coming weeks as the film shoot date fast approaches.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones hit theaters on August 23, 2013.
