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 was really hoping for Emma Roberts, but Lilly looks good for the part too! :)

Oh, wow! I've never heard of this actress before but she really DOES look perfect to play Clary! Can't wait to see who's gonna make up the rest of the cast~~~ (Hoping very much for David Henney for Magnus!!)

I loved Lily Collins in The Blind Side! She's a really great actress.

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?? :\

Three separate movies.

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.

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
