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!

Love her as a redhead. But I must admit I was kind of rooting for her to be Katniss. Ah well, at least she'll be in my other favorite series...

She fits the role! (note to Cassie too)
I agree 100% - she is perfect for Clary! She will do fantastic.

And, Cassie, you MUST watch the Blind Side! It's an amazing movie, and very heartwarming; you will love it.

This is exciting! I hope they end up making the rest of the books; that's would be amazing.

I would never have thought that she was going to end up being Clary, she's a great actress though! She looks perfect for the part! :)

I can't wait who they cast for Jace! I hope it's Alex Pettyfer, he'll be amazing. If it's not him, I hope the one who'se going to play Jace will be awesome either way! ;P

I like it! Lily is beautiful.. I MUST CONFESS I LOVE CLARY SO MUCH, so nobody will be perfect to me, but Lily it's ok. Now we just wait for the other characters. I'm specialy interested about Jace, I love he too and I think that the best actor to play his character is Alex Pettyfer. At first I didn't like him, but now I know that he is the best for the role.

Well, I'm sorry if I don't speak very well, but I'm from Argentina and I'm learning english, but I can't speak it very well yet.

Hugs and kisses for everybody ♥

Iuni :)

Somehow it feels weird having the daughter of Phil Collins is going to be Clary. Anyways: I like her. I love her looks! Although in my head she was more of the Katniss or Katsa, I will adore her as Clary.
I'm looking forward to see who's going to be Jace, Iz and Simon.

I had a total Fangirl Freak out!
She's so pretty!!! She looks like Clary to me, I saw her in the Blind Side, she'll be really good.
I freaked out when I saw that this is an ACTUAL casting. Oh man, SO STOKED for the rest! <3

I definitely approve. She doesn't look too old and she does sort of have that artsy, delicate look that Clary has :]

I know!
She's perfect! ♥
camillestrange on December 11th, 2010 05:57 pm (UTC)
This is going to be GREAT!!
Okay, I'm glad that she's playing Clary and not Emma Stone

Re: This is going to be GREAT!!
I don't think Emma Stone would be a BAD Clary, just not the Clary we all would love to see. But yes, I think she will be amazing! :D
