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!

Wow. Somehow she looks almost exactly how I imagined Clary (in the first image anyway!). Very cool - and kinda creepy...

Very excited for the movie!!!!!

Clary
I'm just happy when the people behind the casting pick actors/actresses who actually LOOK like they could be the characters from the book. Example: If she has long red curly hair, then the character in the movie should also. I'm perfectly content with Lily.

Cassie, I saw the article you posted on twitter and I was wondering if the film really has been greenlit?
Cause that's what the article says.
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on December 13th, 2010 08:25 pm (UTC)
Not what I think of as "greenlit," no.

OMG shes amazing as Clary, i freaking love her. Shes a amazing actor and she looks exactly like i imagined Clary!!
Also, i think Alex Pettyfer would be amazing as Jace, he looks exactly like i imagined him, plus he looks as if he has a sweet side& a sarcastic side, which i love<3
Anywayss, great choice for Clary, love it. Think about Alex for Jace :)

Good choice!
Tbh i visulalised clary a little differently but I think she looks perfect! she has clary's slight, delicate frame and is pretty in a fresh-faced, girl next door way. she gets an A+ from me in looks, lets hope her acting talent is up to par (even tho ive heard that shes very talented.) cant wait 4 the movie!
heavenlyzheavenlyz on December 13th, 2010 11:24 pm (UTC)

OMG!!!! I didn't know you have a Live Journal. I love love your book series. I've read all three of them. I even tweeted that I hope they make this a movie couple of months ago. And lo and behold just found out this weekend that they are! I couldn't contain my excitement.

I also didn't know that there are book 4,5 and 6. I just found your website also.

About Lily Colin, I've never seen her in any movie but she does looks like a good Clary Fray.

I think she is perfect for the part congrats... i know u don't get to pick how get to play the parts... idk if u have a say in it but i think alex pettyfer would be a great jace.

The movie
Who is the film going to be directed by and what other movies has he/she done?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on December 14th, 2010 03:29 am (UTC)
Re: The movie
The second linked article names the director.

Lilly Collins - Clary
I've seen the Blind Side and she didn't have a really big role, but she was sweet and very real in the part. Since that movie was based on a true story, she didn't have a lot of room to open up the character. Can't wait to see what she does with Clary!
Mary Elizabeth YehMary Elizabeth Yeh on December 14th, 2010 06:27 am (UTC)
I guess... but if they mess up Alex Pettyfer for Jace, I'm gonna be a really pissed off girl.
I could actually see her as Clary. All they'd have to do is dye her hair more orange and...does Clary have green eyes? Well if she does, this girl needs contacts.
Every detail must be perfect to do justice to this excellent series!
(Anonymous) on December 14th, 2010 06:49 am (UTC)
Wow she looks perfect for the part I admit I had to watch the blind side in religion class and I don't recognize her at all I can't wait for the movie to come out me andy best friend Tanis are going to wait in lone forever to get good seats in the first screening in our city

She does look like Clary! Never heard of her but don't worry I'm going to watch ALL of the movies she's in (I have to do research duh!)I was kind of hoping for Molly Quinn but I'm loving the fact that I don't know her (yet(: )my friend thinks Adam Lambert should play Magnus *sigh* if only he decided to be an actor instead.

Great Choice!
I didn't really know who she was until now but I think this is an awesome pick for Clary! I love that she's under the radar because that means most people wont have an already formed opinion of her. She sure does look like Clary.

I just watched the trailer for priest and it looks like she is an amazing actress as well.

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi1116145945/ (I think she is the girl screaming)

Now if only they do just as amazing a job casting Jace. My vote goes for Alex Pettyfer but if not, an unknown would be really really nice.

Thanks for the update!

The Mortal Instruments
Oh I am so excited, this is going to be great. Move over twilight, found these books very very gripping , fast-paced and interesting. Cant wait to see the rest of the cast.

I was hoping Emma Stone would play Clary but I think Lily Collins will do an awesome job too. :-)

Clary
WAH! I think she'll make a really good Clary! Nice choice!
Alice Lyra EylesbarrowAlice Lyra Eylesbarrow on December 14th, 2010 02:23 pm (UTC)
Well, but I don't agree with you who wants Alex Pettyfer to play Jace, he'll be starring in I am Number 4 and I think that's enough. (And he's ugly anyway xD) I'm voting for Jamie Campbell Bower! :D I know he's kinda in to Twilight and Harry Potter, but he's best of the more known actors.
(Anonymous) on December 14th, 2010 04:07 pm (UTC)
Fab choice for clary! Can't wait to see who'll play jace!!!!
(Anonymous) on December 14th, 2010 04:23 pm (UTC)

i hope shes a good actress too! and i hope this hair is natural =D

thumbs up for you girl ;D
