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!

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.
