movie news — casting Clary  
Just dropping an entry to announce that, as reported by Deadline, Lily Collins, who starred in The Blind Side and the upcoming Priest**, has been cast to play Clary in the movie adaptation of City of Bones. The producers and director have worked with her before and say great things, and I have to admit right now I haven't seen The Blind Side but am obviously going to go out and watch it NOW.

She is completely adorable and looks right for Clary to me:






[and with curly hair!]

And now, of course, as this article notes, presumably the speculation about who plays Jace will begin in earnest . . .

** And apparently is also famous for dating Taylor Lautner — did I know this? No, but my readers apparently know everything. :)


ETA: There are now 590 comments on the post and I think 589 mention Alex Pettyfer. We get it. Really, we do! It would be hard to miss. Just a reminder that I don't have any influence over casting!

Jace and Clary
Lily is perfect for Clary. Maybe Thomas Dekker can be Jace. They'll look great together.

Aw, she is adorable. I can so see her as Clary :)

(Confession: I haven't seen The Blind Side, either...)
Lauren/Will: Happydist_reflection on December 10th, 2010 04:10 am (UTC)
Massive tick of approval. This is a brilliant choice by the casting agent she looks perfect & has great acting skills! There is hope for this movie franchise yet! :D
hailey_x on December 10th, 2010 04:10 am (UTC)
Excited for this.
She looks like she has the sweetness and the strength to play Clary.
Can't wait to find out more!
brandogirlbrandogirl on December 10th, 2010 04:10 am (UTC)
I don't know who she is, but SHE'S PERFECT. :) I approve.

YESS! totally see her playing CLARY!!
Brandi LoutonBrandi Louton on May 14th, 2011 05:51 pm (UTC)
i think that the girl that plays victoria in the twilight movies would also be a good choice for clary, she pulls off the red hair really well.

Whoa, girl. Sure, you may not like her as casting, but it's already done. No reason to be senile/angered.

Have gone ahead and edited her wiki page already. XDXD

Perfect! I haven't seen her work yet, but she looks like what I pictured Clary to be. This is really exciting and I can't wait to see the movie grow into an actual film!
(Anonymous) on March 8th, 2011 03:38 pm (UTC)
Alex Pettyfer
Alex Pettyfer should absolutley play jace. No matter what i think he would be perfect. He looks like the charecter and everything
tyngasreviews.blogspot.com on December 10th, 2010 04:16 am (UTC)
I've never seen her play, but she does have the look
l'amor che muove il sole l'altre stelledash_of_nutmeg on December 10th, 2010 04:18 am (UTC)
She looks like she can play the part, so I'm definitely excited to see her take on the role as Clary!

And to those complaining: let's just be thankful that the movie is being made. I'm sure it's going to be great, so let's stay positive and give it a chance. :)

Jynn Morganjynnmorgan on December 10th, 2010 04:24 am (UTC)
That's pretty cool. I'm afraid I don't have an opinion on the actress herself, as I usually don't until after the actual movie comes out, but just hearing a name makes it so much more... real. I mean, I hear of movie rights being sold and they never make it anywhere, and hearing a director named or whatever definitely helps to make that more real, but actually seeing the faces that will be attached to the characters... wow. I can't wait for this to come out.
mmrm26 on December 10th, 2010 04:25 am (UTC)
She looks adorable and I'm sure she'll be able to pull off Clary.
So far it looks like the casting is going to be great.

And for the people that are saying that she can't act or she doesn't look the part, well, you haven't seen in her in this movie yet, have you? And just because you don't like some of the choices it's kind of wrong not to go see the movie, especially if you love the books and you support the author. But I digress.

Anyway, congratulations, Cassie. I know this is probably super exciting for you. I know that as soon as I saw the news I started screaming and ran to my mom. :P
Did I mention it's almost midnight here? ;)
I can't wait to see who they cast for the other characters!
Kelly RobinsonKelly Robinson on December 10th, 2010 04:25 am (UTC)

sammyjones57: GarrettCSsammyjones57 on December 10th, 2010 04:27 am (UTC)
I think she looks the part and would make a great Clary. How exciting for you, Cass!

I'm really dying to know who is going to be casted as Jace and Simon. I cannot wait to see my boys on screen!
Tara Lindsay HallTara Lindsay Hall on December 10th, 2010 04:27 am (UTC)
Amazing!
Love her! She was never one I thought of before, but now that I think of her she's really perfect. Very talented, I think she will definitely do Clary justice. I'm extremely excited to see it all come together!

But we all know that Jace is the important one, really. (Still holding out for RDJ... ;D Seriously, just kidding.)

Cassie, has there been any merchandising talk yet, who will be licensed to produce/distribute, etc.? Just hoping it's not NECA. But they could do worse.
