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!

Wow. Somehow she looks almost exactly how I imagined Clary (in the first image anyway!). Very cool - and kinda creepy...

Very excited for the movie!!!!!

Absolutely positivly perfect!

I'm just happy when the people behind the casting pick actors/actresses who actually LOOK like they could be the characters from the book. Example: If she has long red curly hair, then the character in the movie should also. I'm perfectly content with Lily.

Cassie, I saw the article you posted on twitter and I was wondering if the film really has been greenlit?
Cause that's what the article says.
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on December 13th, 2010 08:25 pm (UTC)
Not what I think of as "greenlit," no.

OMG shes amazing as Clary, i freaking love her. Shes a amazing actor and she looks exactly like i imagined Clary!!
Also, i think Alex Pettyfer would be amazing as Jace, he looks exactly like i imagined him, plus he looks as if he has a sweet side& a sarcastic side, which i love<3
Anywayss, great choice for Clary, love it. Think about Alex for Jace :)

Good choice!
Tbh i visulalised clary a little differently but I think she looks perfect! she has clary's slight, delicate frame and is pretty in a fresh-faced, girl next door way. she gets an A+ from me in looks, lets hope her acting talent is up to par (even tho ive heard that shes very talented.) cant wait 4 the movie!

OMG!!!! I didn't know you have a Live Journal. I love love your book series. I've read all three of them. I even tweeted that I hope they make this a movie couple of months ago. And lo and behold just found out this weekend that they are! I couldn't contain my excitement.

I also didn't know that there are book 4,5 and 6. I just found your website also.

About Lily Colin, I've never seen her in any movie but she does looks like a good Clary Fray.

The movie
Who is the film going to be directed by and what other movies has he/she done?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on December 14th, 2010 03:29 am (UTC)
Re: The movie
The second linked article names the director.

Lilly Collins - Clary
I've seen the Blind Side and she didn't have a really big role, but she was sweet and very real in the part. Since that movie was based on a true story, she didn't have a lot of room to open up the character. Can't wait to see what she does with Clary!
