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 honestly can't see her playing Clary... She just doesn't fit at all what I pictured. She looks too young, to me.
I just hope that when I go to see this movie (which I honestly couldn't believe was actually coming out. One of the few I almost didn't want made into a movie. But congratulations on the movie deal, as well.)it doesn't let me down from how strongly I felt about the book.
Only thing to do: Go in there with low expectations, and not be disappointed when it's better than that. (It's how I am for every movie, so please don't knock that. It makes it so that you're not ever disappointed.)
