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!

Congratulations on the casting of Clary! She looks perfect for the part, and I can't wait for the rest of the casting decisions to come out! It must be so exciting to see your characters being cast for a movie adaptation! I must say, as an Eng Lit major I hardly have anytime for pleasure reading (especially YA pleasure reading), but when I do I make the time for your books! I can't wait for City of Fallen Angels to come out--please tell me you have tour dates in Arizona somewhere! I would love to get the chance to come out and see you!
