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!

Lily Collins
I have never written on one of these, so bare with me - but I've just found your books via Clockwork Angel - I love them - and the young lady who has been cast to play Clary - is Phil Collins' daughter - a rather famous drummer back in my day - and is still working (just released a new CD)... Anyway, I knew she was modeling, but I didn't realize she had gone into acting too-She will be fabulous as Clary. Her father was a pretty cool actor himself! Okay, I'll stop - but just so you know, I'm desperate for the second book in the Internal Devices series - I'm from the Steam Punk world myself and loved every second of the first. Reading City of Bones right now, so I promise I'll catch up! Kat
