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!

I was hoping for Molly Quinn (I'm a hopeless Castle fanatic ;D), but I approve! So excited!!

She is fabulous, I think if I ever picture Clary some way is definitely like her. Hopefully Jace will be the same!

ok i couldn't see it before but now i can obviously the people in charge are going to take this seriousy enough to make better decisions then their twilight predecessors. they want people to go see it and make some money right???

I'm sure they do. I do hope though that you realize that your question is sort of weird. Twilight has made a phenomenal amount of money as a film franchise. It is so far from a failure it inhabits a completely different solar system. I sometimes wonder if people leaving these kind of comments actually know that . . .

She is seems like she would be a good Clary! The only thing is that she is a bit tall. Oh well, not everything can be perfect. When are you going to do this months teasers? Congrats Cassy! :)

This is so exciting! She looks like a perfect Clary!

Cassie, do you have any idea if they are going to announce any others actors within this month?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on December 12th, 2010 05:05 pm (UTC)
No, I don't.

Yes! She definitely is the RIGHT Clary! I hope Alex Pettyfer will be casted as Jace.:"> Lily Collins and Alex Pettyfer FTW \m/

Hi Cassie, are you going to visit philippines soon? your fans here are dying to see you.

WOW. I wanted to be Clary so bad. Except I am to young and hoped they wouldnt start casting for 3 years. But as I am to young I'll suck it up. They made an excellent choice, she is defintly the right Clary.

No, she isn't play Clary! Dakota Blue Richards or Emma Roberts play Clary.
