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:

http://m.reelzchannel.com/movie-news/8934/alex-pettyfer-set-to-star-as-jace-wayland-in-the-mortal-instruments/

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..
