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!

Oh! I'm so excited!

In that second photo (with the curly hair) she looks almost exactly how I envisioned Clary! I think the casting director did an excellent job.

I so can't wait to see who will play the rest (especially Jace!). Let's hope they do as good a job with him!

I can see her as Clary - oddly, the curly hair shot more than the candid. Yay!

Really anxious for this movie!
I really see her as Clary (especially as a redhead!)

She is adorable! And...
Has anyone considered Chord Overstreet from Glee (Sam) as Jace?
I think he would be lovely!! By the way, The Blind Side is an amazing movie, sooooo worth watching & crying!

Re: She is adorable! And...
Maybe he's too pretty...but I always think of Jace as being ethereal - not perfect, but stunning. Who has a wish list for Jace? Would love to hear peoples dream Jace...

Wow, her look is perfect! I've seen The Blind Side and she's a pretty good actress, definitely a must see movie. :) I can't WAIT to see my favorite series on the big screen, move over stupid Twilight movies, Cassandra is taking over!

so fun! I think she is a great choice, she did great in the blind side, quiet cool but underlying strength. how exciting to be here from the start.

i never would have thought of her, but she's absolutely perfect!! (and i did like her in "the blind side").

ooh, i'm excited! :)

She certainly looks the part!

How exciting is it that there's actually been casting? What a great Christmas present. I hadn't realized they were this far into the movie-making process.

If it's anything like when Twilight started casting, things will start happening quickly now and I, for one, am very excited!

Does this make the movie official?
Cause I thought casting didn't start until a movie was greenlit.

Please read Ms. Clare
I don't know her as an actress because I have never seen her act before, but I do know she is the daughter of Phil Collins. It will be nice to see how her acting is. I do think she might be a good Clary, I do hope that they pick someone really good to be Jace. It is nice of you to bring movie information to your fans I appreciate it. =)I will be optimistic and give her the chance.
