Sigourney Weaver in talks to star as Imogen Herondale in ‘THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF ASHES’


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sigourney Weaver is in negotiations to star as Inquisitor Imogen Herondale in The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes.

The project continues the story of a girl (Collins) who discovers she is a demon-hunting Shadowhunter and enters a world filled with warring vampires, werewolves and faeries, while also falling for another Shadowhunter (Bower).

In one of the few new roles, the veteran actress will play the ruthless leader of the Shadowhunters who will stop at nothing to destroy the man who killed her son.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes will begin filming on September 23 in Toronto.

    • I recently saw Abduction and I saw Avatar a long time ago and OMG she is such a good actress and fits Imogen’s character so well!!

  3. I think she will be amazin for this role!!!! *fingers crossed*

  4. AMAZING! I totally had my hopes set on her as President Coin (Mockingjay) but this would also be great. I would love this to happen.

  5. This would be perfect for Imogen!!!!!

  6. Great choice if it can’t be Helen Mirren!

    She worked with Lily in Abduction, right?

    • Yes, she did! And I’m really excited about Sigourney because she was actually the actress I pictured as Imogen. I think she’d be a great addition to the cast. Keep your fingers crossed, Shadowhunters!

  11. Who’s going to be Maryse?

  12. I’m totally picturing Sigourney with runes…..she’d be an amazing addition and she’s completely badass. Have all of the original cast members been signed for COA?

      Yeah, if you mean like Clary, Simon, Jace, Isabelle, Alec, etc. Then yes I think there was a post about it actually. 🙂

  13. Awesome news – she would be perfect for the role. She is a great actress!!!!!!!:) It ‘s also wonderful if she accepts as people who haven’t heard or heard much about the Mortal Instruments series…….(yes I know it is unthinkable, but I am sure there are some people out there) will start to look at the series when they see a well known actress who has been around a while with a role in our series!!!!!

  14. Eeep!!! I’m so excited! I would love to have her in CoA! It would be such a great addition 🙂

  16. I guess she’s okay but I really wished it was Michelle Fairley cuz she’s exactly how imagined Imogen Herondale to look like.

  17. haha! i love her movies!

  18. I say yes! I love this actress, she’s really badass in her own way and I love it. I think she would play Imogen brilliantly.

    the fact that we are having this news about the cast for COA, I think I’m gonna cry of happiness!!!!! I’ll be so happy if she is Imogen, she’s .one of my fav artists, she is such an amazing actress!

  21. AHHH exactly who i would picture 😀

  22. Absolutely flawless in every way!! I cannot believe this is happening!!!

  23. Shaz herondale // July 30, 2013 at 8:12 AM // Reply

    absolutely completely love love love it

  24. I just died. Did anyone else just die, because I’m pretty sure I just died, okay. OMFG! RIPLEY! “GET AWAY FROM HER YOU BITCH!”

  25. Why are they casting already and why do they have set film dates? We don’t even know if this movie is going to do well. I am a huge fan and there is nothing i would want more but how can they be so sure this movie won’t bomb like Beautiful Creatures or The Host? I really would like someone to explain this to me so that I could feel better

    • Well they can’t know that 100%. But one thing the team behind TMI are doing that is better than the oother two you mentioned is PROMOTION! This cast has been everywhere,there’s the merchandise line, soundtrack with a broad variety of artists, there’s a huge presence on social media (i’ve been looking at their facebook the past few days and noticed that they’ve been averaging 10-15k new likes per day), they started playing trailers on tv a month or so ago and have been playing them in theaters since at least December. Magazine covers are coming. Hopefully interviews are coming.

      TMI has a larger following and is more positively received than the others as well.

      • Okay thank you!! Then I have concluded those other people have no idea what they are on about!!!

      • Also I read that they felt more comfortable giving the green light with this sequel because of the fan base of the books in general and how well Hunger Games did and how well Twilight did.

    She’s good, but I’d like her hair to be pale blonde…

  27. Tilda Swinton was my first pic for Imogen but OMG Ripley?! Awesome!

  28. She would be a good Inquisitor. I wonder if she’ll die her hair gray. She shouldn’t she looks perfect like that

  29. teamedwardjace // July 30, 2013 at 6:51 PM // Reply

    I think she would be amazing!

  30. BY THE ANGEL she would be so perfect in all of he movies she has that darkness and strong side to her which is Imogen!
