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 trying to decide. I mean I'm not against Lily Collins playing Clary per sae. But I think it'll be fine.

This is so exciting! Now, as long as Alex Pettyfer is Jace my life will be complete :)

I know this has very little do to with this subject, but me and my friends were debating the age of Jace.
After looking through wiki and yahoo we got the ages of either 16 or 17. Though they both had a large amount of votes each.
Just to clarify, how old is Jace?

Questions that I'm hoping doesn't annoy you.
Hey! I'm Julia, and I'm a BIG fan of yours. No offense to Twilight fans, but when I read your series, I thought yours was WAY BETTTER!
Anyways, on with the Q's!
1. Is Maia pronounced May-ah or Mya? Because I'm really not sure, but its confusing me alot.
2. Is this the for sure Clary? I'm sorry if you did say it was or wasn't, but I'm kind of confused. I'm not good with this movie stuff.
3. Is Aline turning... uhm, ... you know, les? 'Cuz some people say she is, but I'm not sure if its a rumour. I think it hinted on that in COG.
4. And lastly, is it okay to write Fanfiction about your series? I feel safer if I ask you first, considering some authors may not like if I did.

THANKS! You're amazing! You, L.J. Smith, and Ally Carter are my FAVOURITE authors! YOU ROCK!

Julia, a big fan. (L) :)

Re: Questions that I'm hoping doesn't annoy you.
1) My -ah.
2) She is as surely Clary as anything is sure in the movie biz.
3) People don't 'turn gay", they are born gay or straight or whatever. Aline flat-out says what's going on with her in CoG : she kissed Jace because she wasn't sure "any guy was her type" — so basically she's not sure she's attracted to men at all. That's where she's at.
4) It's fine, there's a big fanfic section over at ff.net, I believe.

blind side
I think she looks like clary, I can't wait for the movie, I loved this actress in the blind side which by the way I can't believe you've never seen the blind side! It's such a fantastic movie. I love it and I hope you do too.

Lily Collins will actually make a good Clary, I think. I've never considered her before, but I have seen her in the Blind Side, and she was really good.
This is exciting. It's actually happening!

She's really pretty, and with that curly hair? Great choice!
anitasaxena on December 10th, 2010 10:56 pm (UTC)
I think she is perfect.

I was really hoping for Emma Roberts, but Lilly looks good for the part too! :)
Redcrestredcrest on December 10th, 2010 11:18 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow! I've never heard of this actress before but she really DOES look perfect to play Clary! Can't wait to see who's gonna make up the rest of the cast~~~ (Hoping very much for David Henney for Magnus!!)

NO idea!
