Lily Collins talks ‘MORTAL INSTRUMENTS’ and ‘CITY OF ASHES’ movie with MTV U.K.


Lily Collins is busy making the rounds in the U.K. for her film Stuck in Love, which hits UK theaters June 14 and U.S. theaters July 5, and reporters can’t resist asking the young actress about her role in the highly-anticipated The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, out Aug. 21.

Lily spoke to MTV U.K. about how Mortal Instruments fans have shown their love and support on the set of her latest movie, Love, Rosie.

It’s funny, fans are already–I’m shooting in Dublin right now–and some fans have been coming to the set with books to sign. And it’s lovely that the support is there and I know the expectation is so high when it’s a book with many fans like this, but I think we’ve done a really good job of making it fresh and new yet staying true to the book and making it really real. I’m excited for it to come out.

Lily also mentioned that they’ve already begun work on the sequel, The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, which begins production in the fall with director Harald Zwart returning.

We’re already starting to work on the sequel and, yeah, I’m really proud of it. So whatever happens happens, but I’m really excited.

You can watch the video interview with Lily at MTV U.K.

The Mortal instruments: City of Ashes is slated for a 2014 worldwide release.

    another amazing interview! lily is always so articulate and a great actress and she has such respect and support for her costars! it seems like she and logan have great film chemistry! stuck in love looks really great good! also, she has great music taste and it’s so awesome tat she likes a mix like me and has rpesct for them! i’d buy one of her ablums!

  2. I feel like they’re saying City of Ashes is gonna happen when really they themselves aren’t even sure. Lily always sounds skeptical and has said in the past that the sequels depend on the success of the first film. I hate to sound negative but there isn’t much press surrounding the film either and its two months away. No major outlet seems to be reporting on the new stills that were released either.

    • We’re not at the two month mark yet, but there has been press surrounding the film. Entertainment Weekly has covered it quite a bit, MTV has a lot, and others are taking note. The real marketing push won’t begin until they’re two months away, including Comic Con. Of course we won’t know for sure until City of Ashes actually begins filming, but it’s looking good

    OMG I have never been so exited. Mortal Instruments is my life i’v read the books so many times I can’t wait to see the movies and the characters come to life on the big scream. I am reluctant to share the story with people who have never even heard of the books because then there will be a bunch of wannabe fans that only like the movie saying that they love the story more than Mr and real fans. Nevertheless I’m still Sooooooo exited
