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!

She's a perfect Clary and i absolutely loved her in The Blind Side. :)
Alex Pettyfer annoys me. He's already been in like ten movies just this year and Jace has more attitude. I really hope he doesnt play Jace

Movie Q
might you have any idea if the movie is going to be one of the big productions in theaters or is it going to be small where only certain theaters will play it and you have to spend painstaking hours looking for it? hoping for the first :)

I believe Philip Ettinger would make a good Jace Wayland... He can die his hair blonde and he is a cutie. Look him up on IMDB. :)

ALL I'M GOING TO SAY IS.... Alan Cummings would be ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for Magnus Bane! (Photo: http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/08060ua0o7dtU/340x.jpg) If you've ever seen his work, you'd know he's an INCREDIBLE actor, and Magnus Bane has Alan's name written ALL OVER IT!

Alec, Magnus and a random question
Can someone please help me out? I was just wondering, in the ID series The Clockwork Angel, it mentions why the Lightwood's hate Will because of what he did to their little sister, is that going to be elaborated on in a future ID or even TMI book, or was it just my imagination and it's really just a trifling detail?

Also: I know you, Cassandra Clare, have no control over casting but I think that Adam Lambert should be Magnus XD. And of course, Alex Pettyfer as Jace.But the guy who plays Alec needs really pretty blue eyes. Like erm...Frodo's eyes in somne scenes of Lord of the Rings.
Anyway, love the books, can't wait for the movie!!

One prob-blame-o!
I can't get over Lily's eyebrows. I've NEVER pictured Clary with such thick eyebrows! >.

I was thinking more Emma Stone, but she is great too!! <3

Re: Actress!
well even though emma stone would be a good choice, she is contracted for the new spider-man reboot, and possibly sequels. and she also died her hair blonde.

Who should play Jace???? I think Drew Van Acker would be really great as Jace

Lily as Clary
Perfect, she just remind me of Clary sooo much.

Alex Pettyfer
Alex Pettyfer just has to be Jace, he looks exactly like him and besides no one else is hot enough to pull Jace off. Cant wait till the movie comes out!!!(:

They could have done sorry and the trailer for the new book it shit you tell it fake sorryyyy but i am a big fan of yours <3 from serih and email me serishsubhan@hotmail.com :)

i know they've already casted Clary but when i think Clary i picture Molly C. Quinn from castle especially since her hair basically matches the cover. She to me has the first appearance of fragile like how Clary comes off....
(Anonymous) on April 6th, 2011 10:30 pm (UTC)
she doesn't have any choice over the casting.
(Anonymous) on April 6th, 2011 05:44 pm (UTC)

(Anonymous) on April 6th, 2011 09:24 pm (UTC)

Guh! I'm soooo excited! I bought and read City of Fallen Angels the day it came out! <333 <333 <333 I can't wait to see who plays Jace! <3 I hope that he is just as the book describes him, but I also hope that he has his attitude and love JUST RIGHT.
(Anonymous) on April 14th, 2011 02:23 am (UTC)
Alex Pettyfer is too baby faced for Jace, haha :) I think that someone more flamboyant should play Jace :D
(Anonymous) on April 16th, 2011 03:43 pm (UTC)
I think she is beautiful and I cant wait for the movie! It is so hard picturing the characters whenever I read, but the one character I can always see is Magnus Bane and he always looks like Jay Manuel from Americas Next Top Model
