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!

O:
I think she's quite right for Clary. Although, her eyebrows slightly unnerve me. I think that's just me being overly picky, though :]

I'm a bit more worried about who they'll choose for Jace....
I've heard a lot of people mention Alex Pettyfer in regards to this.
I wonder if that casting will happen.

~Oooh, I hope the movie doens't turn into a flop.
I love this series, and Cassandra is my favorite writer, so I'd hate to see that happen D;
