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!

As long as they do a better job at actully following the books story line and cast people who actually have some resemblance to the characters the way the books tell us this movie should be fantastic ! These books are fabulous and deserve to be told the way they are not some screen writers messed up version and casting agents horrible ideas of how the characters should look . So don't mess up like The Twilight saga and Percy Jackson movie makers have done ! Stay true :)

This girl looks like the perfect Clary !!
