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 love your books and am so excited for a movie!!!! This should be an excellent film and Lily Collins just has this vibe to her that only Clary would have!!!! Who are you going to be casting for Jace?? Many people have been saying that you should choose Alex Pettyfer but I find that he doesn't really look like the Jace described in your books. I can't wait to find out who will play his role and will be checking back every day!!!

Re: Jace
I am not in charge of casting Jace. :)
