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 am happy with the choice
personally, i think that collins is a great choice for the role. i think its funny (not to name any names) that people think that cassandra is in charge of the casting. not trying to be rude or anything to mrs. clare, but she doesn't have the choices to the casting. i mean really? get over yourselfs, how about you write to screen gems and ask them who they are talking to for other characters.
another i think is EXTREMELY disgraceful to every MI fans everywhere is that people think that who they picked for clary is the only choice that they could have! uhhh, people the movie is coming out with lilly collins, like it or not!
and to the girl who said in the movie, clary should have blue eyes, go pick up any book in the series and re-read it about twenty times, or unless you know for a fact that clary has LONG hair and GREEN eyes.

PS~I am not trying to be rude.
