Robert Sheehan talks action in MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES

Robert Sheehan (Simon Lewis) attended the Jameson Empire Awards on Sunday, March 24, where he took the time to promote The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, which hits theaters on Aug. 23.

Robert spoke with BANG Showbiz on the red carpet and raved about the action in the film.

”It’s a great big fat action film. Basically, I think it’s magical and wonderful. For me, it was lots of great big fun shooting it because I was regressed back to being a boy because it was all very fantastical. There were lots of vampires, werewolves and all that business. It was great. It lent itself well to the imagination.

”I think it has an uninhibited sense of adventure. There’s a wonderful, tangential sense to the adventure, much in the way of Indiana Jones, where he basically gets pulled to and fro in the mad tide of adventure and [the films are] completely out of control from start to finish.

”That’s what I love about the script and that’s what I think the script has done.”

On the topic of potential sequels:

The former ‘Misfits’ star also confirmed that he and his fellow cast mates are signed on to star in potential sequels to the movie, which is based on the first of Clare’s bestselling ‘The Mortal Instruments’ books – five of which have been published, with a sixth due for release next year.

Quizzed about his contractual obligations for future sequels, he said: ”Yes, we are indeed.”
