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!

I had heard that there was only going to be one movie trying to cram all three books into it?? Oh I hope not!
I really don't pay attention to pop culture so if anyone knows can they please tell me?? :\

I never saw her before, but she looks PERFECT. I can't wait for this movie now! I'm a bit nervous about the casting of Jace and Magnus though ...

YES, GO LILY! down with the haters :D

SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!
AHHHH SHE IS MY EXACT IMAGE OF CLARY AND I AM SURE SHE WOULD MAKE CLARY PROUD (or in this case- Cassandra Clare)
(Anonymous) on December 11th, 2010 02:00 am (UTC)
Ooh she's perfect!... now if only we could have Alex Pettyfer play Jace=]
(Anonymous) on December 11th, 2010 02:19 am (UTC)
YES!!!
the only thing i have to say is that i pictured her hair a little bit lighter then that but it is still a really good match!!!

Shes so cute! And she defiantly has Clary in her. I am very optimistic about this decision and hopefully other other choices of actors and actresses will be just as good.
(Anonymous) on December 11th, 2010 02:31 am (UTC)
I can totally see her as Clary. Loved her in The Blind Side.

This makes me confident that they'll pick good actors/actresses for the other parts. :)

I'm excited to see this made into a movie. I alwayds thought Shaliene Woodley should play Clary so this should be interesting to see Lilly play her. Also I think that Alex Pettyfer would make a great Jace

Alex
OMG I like her, I was team Emma Roberts for Clary but this girls is perfect, looks like Clary to me.
They´re going good with the cast fr the movie, at least they didnt messed it up like they did for twilight casting Kristen Stwart as Bella :S
Lilly is an almost perfect Clary

CoFA teasers
When will you be posting the December teaser for CoFA?

By the way, I absolutely adore your books! You're a fantastic writer. I can't wait for Clockwork Prince and City of Fallen Angels!

Re: CoFA teasers
Next weekend.

Love her as a redhead. But I must admit I was kind of rooting for her to be Katniss. Ah well, at least she'll be in my other favorite series...
kswriter92kswriter92 on December 11th, 2010 04:06 am (UTC)
She fits the role! (note to Cassie too)
I agree 100% - she is perfect for Clary! She will do fantastic.

And, Cassie, you MUST watch the Blind Side! It's an amazing movie, and very heartwarming; you will love it.

WOW
I think she looks great... sadly i have not seen the Blind Side either.. but the second picture really looks like "my" clary... how exciting!! your book is being made into a MOVIE!! how surreal...

This is exciting! I hope they end up making the rest of the books; that's would be amazing.

I would never have thought that she was going to end up being Clary, she's a great actress though! She looks perfect for the part! :)

I can't wait who they cast for Jace! I hope it's Alex Pettyfer, he'll be amazing. If it's not him, I hope the one who'se going to play Jace will be awesome either way! ;P

Iuni :)
I like it! Lily is beautiful.. I MUST CONFESS I LOVE CLARY SO MUCH, so nobody will be perfect to me, but Lily it's ok. Now we just wait for the other characters. I'm specialy interested about Jace, I love he too and I think that the best actor to play his character is Alex Pettyfer. At first I didn't like him, but now I know that he is the best for the role.

Well, I'm sorry if I don't speak very well, but I'm from Argentina and I'm learning english, but I can't speak it very well yet.

Hugs and kisses for everybody

Iuni :)

Oh my god! Oh my god! Oh my god! She is perfect.

Clary
Somehow it feels weird having the daughter of Phil Collins is going to be Clary. Anyways: I like her. I love her looks! Although in my head she was more of the Katniss or Katsa, I will adore her as Clary.
I'm looking forward to see who's going to be Jace, Iz and Simon.
