Director Harald Zwart has always been great at interacting with the Mortal Instruments fandom, taking time out of his busy schedule (and putting together The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) to answer fan-submitted questions on Tumblr.
On Tuesday, June 11, Harald, who will return to direct The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes that is slated to begin production in the fall, took to Tumblr to answer more fan questions. Among the topics he addressed were City of Ashes casting, Jace’s eye color in City of Bones and whether or not Church is in the first film.
On when the Norway premiere for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones:
Hey. Yes, it is in Fredrikstad August 23 Come and meet the stars on the red carpet.
On casting and auditions for The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes:
We’re casting in Toronto.
On whether Church is in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones:
We’ll try to put him in the second movie.
On whether there will be an open casting call for Maia Roberts in City of Ashes:
Hi there. It’s a little too early. Anyway we’re casting in Toronto.
On Beth Crowley’s Mortal Instruments-inspired song “Warrior:”
Thanks. I will check it out.
On Mortal Instruments posters for sale:
Not sure. You’d have to ask the local distributor. I know that they are putting up posters that are collectibles meant for fans to grab.
On what color Jace’s eyes will be in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones:
Good question. You get a glimpse of his golden eyes in the movie.
On DVD extras, including Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower’s audition and bloopers:
Great ideas. I’ll mention it to our DVD people.
On the deviation from the books where it says Clary is “chosen:”
Don’t worry. We’re following the book.
Harald also accepted a lot of positive feedback and praise about what fans have seen so far from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is set for an Aug. 21 theatrical release.
