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 know he's perfect! If he doesn't get the role, I think I'll cry.

Oh you are so right about Alex Pettyfer for Jace he would be perfect! my only concern about Lily Collins is her age, but otherwise she seems great. I am so excited for these movies!

Alex Pettyfer as Jace?
Not going to happen. Alex has chosen the first of The Last Apprentice series "The Seventh Son" aka "The Wardstone Chronicles" series in the UK. Judging by his performance in "I Am Number Four," it's just as well.

Re: Alex Pettyfer as Jace?
Unless you have information I don't (always possible, I suppose), talks with Pettyfer for multiple projects are still ongoing


but he hasn't committed to any of them. (Not to mention that you can do more than one film at once.)

I haven't seen I Am #4 so can't comment.

Re: Alex Pettyfer as Jace?
*shrugs* Maybe he'll decide so, maybe not. It's his job, actors decide to do different projects based on lots of different factors. If he doesn't want to do it, they'll find someone else.
