Jamie Campbell Bower talks future of ‘Mortal Instruments’ film franchise


Recently at the Curzon Home Cinema launch, Jamie Campbell Bower talked about the future of The Mortal Instruments film franchise with Digital Spy. Production on The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes is set to begin next year.

“With any film like that comes great trepidation, and you have to assess the market as it stands with big franchise films,” Bower told Digital Spy at the launch event for BT TV”s partnership with Curzon Home Cinema.

“We have seen a lot of [those films] flounder, and so if Constantin feel comfortable to move on to the next Mortal Instruments film, I’m happy for that.”

Jamie went on to discuss the importance of connecting with fans.

“Even from being a small part of something like Twilight, I found out that actually, what’s really important is having a connection with the fans.

“It’s great to be able to sit here and do press, but if I can go out there and I can do a mall tour – which is what we did for Mortal Instruments and for Twilight – that actually can make somebody’s day. And that’s sort of what I’m doing this for.”

We can’t wait to see Jamie portray Jace in City of Ashes!

  2. Jamie, Lily, and Cassie didn’t make my day better- they made my life better. ❤ I hope to see them all in Philly again for City of Ashes! 🙂

    I swear By the Angel if they delay the production anymore I will hunt then down! But I can’t wait to see the cast again! They were just to perfect!!

  4. I wanted to see Jace and Clary’s kiss scene in the Seelie Court.

  5. Thank you jaime for always being true to yourself and showing your never ending love for our fanbase oh and by the way you played an awesome caius but I really love u as jace. I feel like some people are still giving him a hard time for his portrayal which I think is kind of silly personally I’m very glad that he’s committed to play jace as this saga goes on god willingly and I’m very grateful for his dedication to it

  6. Oh and as of right now I am reteading the book

  7. Ok I know this is going to sound extremely off topic but then again it kind of has something to do with it. Anyway basically I found a poem that i came across one time and from the way the words sounded it very much reminded me of our situation with city of ashes, the words in the poem remind me of our fandom and the movie itself. Here it is;
    Where I am Doesn’t Matter
    Where I am right now doesn’t matter
    Because I know I have a bright future
    My circumstance is beneath me
    Because I know where I will be
    Words won’t discourage me
    Obstacles won’t hinder me
    Trials won’t sadden me
    Tribulations won’t affect me
    I know where I’m going and
    What it takes to get there
    So the rest of my journey is by faith
    And crossing that bridge called risk
    Where I am right now doesn’t matter
    Because I know I’m on the path of becoming
    (These are the words that represent our fandom and the film franchise no matter the risk I hope it helped)

  8. By the Angel!This is the best news ever! I can’t wait to see Jamie and Lilly in Tmicoa!!!!
