Following news at Mipcom that The Mortal Instruments would be revived on the small screen, Constantin Film gave the official word on Monday.
“We are thrilled to give this epic tale of good versus evil a brand new dimension,” Constantin Film Chairman Martin Moszkowicz said in a press release.
Things are looking up for the small screen adaptation with Ed Decter tapped to serve as showrunner for the series.
Constantin Film co-president Robert Kulzer praised Decter, whose credits include “There’s Something About Mary,” “Unforgettable,” “The Client List” and “In Plain Sight,” for his “passion and love” for the series, in this Deadline article.
“Ed Decter brings a tremendous track record to the table,” said Robert Kulzer. “As a showrunner we wanted someone who shares our passion and love for these characters and stories, and Ed has a remarkable ability to form narratives.”
The Mortal Instruments show is slated for 2015.
