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!

The first time I saw her as clary I was so upset because I had already had pictured who could play clary but now I'm actually quite happy and I think shell do a good job
I know wikipedia is wrong sometimes but is it true the the movie will be based on City of Glass????? What about CoB and CoA?!?!?

Wkipedia says that? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Haha yea that's why I asked. I thought to myself--huh that's weird I don't think Cassandra would like the movie only based on CoG

The problem with an online encylopedia that anyone can edit is that anyone can edit it.

I like that they apparently think a baseball player is directing the film.
