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!

Jace and Clary
Lily is perfect for Clary. Maybe Thomas Dekker can be Jace. They'll look great together.

(Confession: I haven't seen The Blind Side, either...)
Lauren/Will: Happydist_reflection on December 10th, 2010 04:10 am (UTC)
Massive tick of approval. This is a brilliant choice by the casting agent she looks perfect & has great acting skills! There is hope for this movie franchise yet! :D
hailey_x on December 10th, 2010 04:10 am (UTC)
Excited for this.
She looks like she has the sweetness and the strength to play Clary.
Can't wait to find out more!

YESS! totally see her playing CLARY!!
Brandi LoutonBrandi Louton on May 14th, 2011 05:51 pm (UTC)
i think that the girl that plays victoria in the twilight movies would also be a good choice for clary, she pulls off the red hair really well.

Oh love her! I was hoping for Molly Quinn but I'm very happy with Lily Collins too! :D

Re: MOLLY QUINN OR NO MOVIE AT ALL
Whoa, girl. Sure, you may not like her as casting, but it's already done. No reason to be senile/angered.
