The year 2014 is going to be a busy one for Shadowhunters.
Not only is City of Heavenly Fire set to be released in the spring, but The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes is set to be distributed worldwide next year.
Executive producer Martin Moszkowicz shared the news on Twitter:
The Mortal Instruments – City of Ashes set up for worldwide distribution in 2014. Bye, bye Cannes…

Mister Smith Entertainment came to Cannes Film Festival looking to shop numerous titles, including The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, the sequel to this summer’s highly-anticipated The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (out Aug. 21). And they locked up deals.
Moszkowicz told Varietyon Tuesday that distributors of City of Bones were interested in City of Ashes, so expect some of the same distributors to release City of Ashes.
“Everybody who has the first movie wants the second movie. We’re dealing with the details,” producer Moszkowicz said.
Mister Smith recently screened a rough cut of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones for distributors in a private event at Cannes, according to Variety.
Prior to the start of Cannes a couple of weeks ago, Constantin Film announced that they were moving forward with City of Ashes. Harald Zwart, who directed City of Bones, will return for City of Ashes, which begins production in the fall.
