movie news roundup& Alex Pettyfer  
Hey guys,

I know a lot of you have been waiting for updates, so first, here's a two-part interview with Lily Collins where she talks about playing Clary, her favorite scenes, and what she is looking forward to filming the most:

And I know (I know!) a lot of you have seen these articles floating around:

I wanted to wait till I could have an official chat with the studio folks before I said anything, so my small contribution is: I know Alex has met with the director, Scott Stewart, several times; I know he screened Scott's movie, Priest, and loved it; I know he read the TMI books over the holidays and really liked them and liked Jace, and his agents are representing him in negotiating making a deal for the role of Jace. At this point it's all about the deal, which really doesn't have anything to do with me, so I stand back and wait for news like the rest of you.

Anyone for a game of Scrabble?

Cassie, is it really true that if Alex doesn't accept the role, they'll drop the movie deal? Because that's what the articles say. That seems really extreme..

Yea that does seem extreme.
