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!

Re: Jace?
LOVE this. SO much. But I do not understand why they wouldn't make the movie if Alex Pettyfer does not agree. That's so disappointing because he's probably busy with other movies. :( I don't understand why they can't just keep looking for another Jace. :/

Re: Jace?
It doesn't look like he's that busy. He has I Am Number Four coming out but if that tanks, he may well have nothing to do at all. Beyond that I don't see much scheduled on his IMDB page. Anyway I am sure they'll go ashead with the movie without him.
