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!

As long as Jace is Alex Pettyfer and Magnus is Adam Lambert idc who anyone else is...lol. She's a good Clary,though, I've accepted that no one is really the person you see in your mind exactly.
Though Emma Watson would've made a good Clary, supposing she had red hair...I love Harry Potter, so that would've been amazing for me, lol.

I think thats she's probably the closest they can get to finding Clary. She not exactly perfect, but honestly she probably looks diffrent to everyone. So I gyess she's a good choice.

Hello, Cassie. I'm from Spain :)

Me gusta mucho Lilly Collins pero, claro está me interesa Mas Jace, Cassie, se que pido mucho, pero, por favor haz todo lo que esté en tus manos para que Alex Pettyfer interprete a Jace.

Short of personally kidnapping poor Alex, there is nothing I can do to make sure he plays Jace. Just keep your fingers crossed.

I think she is awesome for the role, but, her eyes kind of ruin the picture for me. I hope they use contacts in the movie. I am really excited to see who they pick out for Jace

You know who would be perfect for Alec? Adam Lambert. Think about it, it makes sense. Picture him as Alec in the scenes when Alec is doing something.

I think she's quite right for Clary. Although, her eyebrows slightly unnerve me. I think that's just me being overly picky, though :]

I'm a bit more worried about who they'll choose for Jace....
I've heard a lot of people mention Alex Pettyfer in regards to this.
I wonder if that casting will happen.

~Oooh, I hope the movie doens't turn into a flop.
I love this series, and Cassandra is my favorite writer, so I'd hate to see that happen D;
