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'm sorry to say that lately I haven't really been keeping myself updated on this! But I take this means that the book IS going to be a movie? Cause last time I checked it was only optioned. And if it is going to be a movie when will they start shooting and when will it be done? I can't wait!

City of Bones casting
that would be SO awesome if Adam lambert could play Magnus bane because he is like the best performer ever! and if Matthew gray gubler wasn't too old, maybe he could have played jace :)

Since Lily doesnt have green eyes, can't they give her like colored contacts. Cuz face it clary is the flaming hair and emerald eyes. The same goes for Jace, can they give the actor gold colored contacts? So Cassandra... If you could mention that to the producer I can garentee that fans will be relieved. ( and it doesnt have to be contacts just somehing that will change their eye colour.) Please and Thank you.

Re: Cast
The producers know what the characters look like, really. They do. Our of curiosity, do you feel that the Harry Potter movies were ruined by Dan Radcliffe not having green eyes?

She is perfect for clary but Alex pettyfer for jace?! :( :p
He looks way too innocent and unguarded to be jace and he wouldn't look good with her
So I'd find someone else definately.

she's perfect! but oh my goodness, if i have to hear one more thing about this alex pettyfer, i'm going to scream! he's too old looking and i just don't approve! i really hope he doesn't get cast. sorry to all the fans =/ my choice is chord overstreet. yes? anyone? anyone?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on January 26th, 2011 03:40 pm (UTC)
Kind of funnily, Chord Overstreet is two years older than Alex Pettyfer (Who is currently all styled up to look older, but probably could be dialed back down to look his age again.) *shrugs* Older/younger has a lot to do with makeup and styling. Whoever ends up with the part.

Im excited
Please Please Please let her be a better actress than the Kristen Stewart and not ruin the the book. And i hope the directer knows every girl who has read these books has high expectations for Jace-There has to be looks and talent, Unlike Robert Pat. In all please do not let these movies turn into Twilight, bc the books are amazing and the movies suck. Director if you are reading this Please do not make the humor of the books go away just to make the movies short, i would be willing to sit there for five hours just as long as the movie is good.
