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!

She looks like she can play the part, so I'm definitely excited to see her take on the role as Clary!

And to those complaining: let's just be thankful that the movie is being made. I'm sure it's going to be great, so let's stay positive and give it a chance. :)

Thankful the movie is being made......yeah right. I would much rather keep the mortal instruments world that I imagine.

Is anyone forcing you to watch the movie? No. So there should be no problem.
