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 much as I love Alex Pettyfer... can't this role go to someone who is still developing in the movie industry. Yes I know that he is, but I would love for the characters to be honestly portrayed by newer, fresher people. Actors whom the world doesn't know all that well. It would be like asking Robert Pattinson to be Jace.... please, God no! I can't stand the thought!:(
Great job Cassandra on a successful career! You deserve it.
And I can't wait to read the new mortal instruments novel, I still haven't had the chance to pick it up
