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!

Re: Amazing!
Never seen her before, but she does have that "Clary-flare" to her. I can definitely see her playing the part of Clary. :) Now Jace will be tricky....

Re: Amazing!
Exactly! I think she will do much better (at least in looks) she's not very flary though...... but she definatly looks better with red hair..

Re: Amazing!
She fits Clary's physical description beautifully and she doesn't look like a 30 yr. old trying to play a 16yr old- I really hope she can act.
