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!

AMAZING CHOICE!!!!! she looks perfect for clary. To all the haters who are out there, if you don't like the way she looks then don't see the movie!!! Gosh, you would think fans would be more supportive!!! Anyways, I can't wait for the city of fallen angels comes out, i already pre ordered it at my library!! Good luck with the casting and I cant wait to know who plays Jace!!! :D

I know you said that the majority of the comments were about Alex Pettyfer being Jace, but I thought I'd say it again.
And I don't think that there's really a part for her, but Dianna Agron is my favourite actress ever and I would love to see her in the movie... a vampire perhaps? Werewolf? I'm not sure:)

She's definitely perfect for Clary. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

She's a perfect Clary and i absolutely loved her in The Blind Side. :)
Alex Pettyfer annoys me. He's already been in like ten movies just this year and Jace has more attitude. I really hope he doesnt play Jace

Movie Q
might you have any idea if the movie is going to be one of the big productions in theaters or is it going to be small where only certain theaters will play it and you have to spend painstaking hours looking for it? hoping for the first :)

I believe Philip Ettinger would make a good Jace Wayland... He can die his hair blonde and he is a cutie. Look him up on IMDB. :)

ALL I'M GOING TO SAY IS.... Alan Cummings would be ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for Magnus Bane! (Photo: http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/08060ua0o7dtU/340x.jpg) If you've ever seen his work, you'd know he's an INCREDIBLE actor, and Magnus Bane has Alan's name written ALL OVER IT!

Alec, Magnus and a random question
Can someone please help me out? I was just wondering, in the ID series The Clockwork Angel, it mentions why the Lightwood's hate Will because of what he did to their little sister, is that going to be elaborated on in a future ID or even TMI book, or was it just my imagination and it's really just a trifling detail?

Also: I know you, Cassandra Clare, have no control over casting but I think that Adam Lambert should be Magnus XD. And of course, Alex Pettyfer as Jace.But the guy who plays Alec needs really pretty blue eyes. Like erm...Frodo's eyes in somne scenes of Lord of the Rings.
Anyway, love the books, can't wait for the movie!!
