THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES begins filming in one week

Fans rejoice!

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones begins filming on August 20, which is exactly one week from today!

The original date thrown around was August 15, but in the past couple of months August 20 has also been mentioned and there was some confusion as to exactly when filming would begin.

Exectuive producer Martin Moszkowicz confirmed that principal photography will begin next Monday, August 20.

Some of the cast are in or have made stops in Toronto for prep. Not all cast members will be in Toronto at the same time for the same length, as it depends on their shooting schedule.

  1. I am positively ecstatic! And there is about a year until the theatrical release, so I could not be happier! I simply cannot wait!

  2. Wonder which scene will be filmed first?

    i am so excited for htem to start shooting and for the film though we have to wait a year. I’m sure the cast and crew will all do a great job! and i hoe to see sighting of lily, jamie and everyone. and lily has a student double? well i guess she’ll do some of her own stunts and then her stunt double will cover others. often alot actors do all or almost all their own stunts(if they do most, they might have a stunt double do a few) or do some of their own stunts and then have a stunt double cover the others
