movie news roundup& Alex Pettyfer  
Hey guys,

I know a lot of you have been waiting for updates, so first, here's a two-part interview with Lily Collins where she talks about playing Clary, her favorite scenes, and what she is looking forward to filming the most:

And I know (I know!) a lot of you have seen these articles floating around:

http://m.reelzchannel.com/movie-news/8934/alex-pettyfer-set-to-star-as-jace-wayland-in-the-mortal-instruments/

I wanted to wait till I could have an official chat with the studio folks before I said anything, so my small contribution is: I know Alex has met with the director, Scott Stewart, several times; I know he screened Scott's movie, Priest, and loved it; I know he read the TMI books over the holidays and really liked them and liked Jace, and his agents are representing him in negotiating making a deal for the role of Jace. At this point it's all about the deal, which really doesn't have anything to do with me, so I stand back and wait for news like the rest of you.

Anyone for a game of Scrabble?

—Cassie

As I said on my tweet, I'll be really happy if Alex agreed to do the movie. He's been my picked for Jace since I learned about the movie. He is totally perfect for this role.

YAY! *screams*
fingers crossed (yn)

Cassie, is it really true that if Alex doesn't accept the role, they'll drop the movie deal? Because that's what the articles say. That seems really extreme..

Yea that does seem extreme.
LavenderLavendermini on January 21st, 2011 03:32 am (UTC)

Yay(:
I'm just glad Alex is considering the role at all! Now all we have to do is wait...
Oh and yes I'm up for a game of Scrabble haha(:

Re: Yay(:
Jace is a great role, It's hard to see why anybody would turn it down if they were offered.

I'm glad he is too, and I hope the negotiations work out.

I am so excited to read that he's in talks to play Jace!! :D But if he can't/won't do it...would they *really* cancel the who movie/franchise? Because that would be devastating. :(

For now though, I'll wait anxiously until next week to hear the news one way or the other. Now let's set up that Scrabble board! ;)

The amount of dead I am over this news is extraordinary. I have to clamp a hand over my mouth to keep from shouting my joy for all the street to hear. Lily will be great and Alex is Alex, if its him then he'll be perfect.

It'll be great if he signs the deal/makes the deal because when I see him, I definitely see Jace.
coldkisses25 on January 21st, 2011 03:15 pm (UTC)
Me too. He fits the character description perfectly. And in interviews, he has the same kind of attitude - cocky, but in a sexy way, if you know what I mean. He's just...the perfect Jace.

OMG OMG! My life is nearly complete. He read the books! That has to be the best part in that whole new for me! And he liked it! *heart swells*
Scrabble is a terrible suggestion! I can't sleep! Way too excited! Will you tell s as soon as you know he signed the contract? Oh. I wish you had more power like you have with your books! This is just Torment!
