Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series is huge right now! I haven’t seen a copy on the shelf at the Library in weeks! So it should come as no surprise that there is a movie in pre-production right now. The lead of Clary Fray has already been given to Lily Collins, most famous for her role in The Blind Side.
The first book in the series, The City of Bones, centers on Clary who is dragged into the world of the Shadowhunters when she and her mother are both targeted by the demons. Clary is not supposed to see the world of the Shadowhunters, so when she unexplainably can she finds herself torn between what she used to think was the real world and this new world where all supernatural beings exist. It is unclear right now if the movie will cover what happens in the entire Mortal Instruments series, or if it will focus on the first book.
Here are books in the series order. (Click on the title to find it at the Library!)
1. City of Bones
2. City of Ashes
3. City of Glass
4. City of Fallen Angels
5. City of Lost Souls coming May 2012
6. City of Heavenly Fire coming September 2013
Much like the casting for Hunger Games, rumors are abound as to who star opposite of Collins as Jace, a Shadowhunter. According to MTV.com three stars are being considered right now:
1. Jamie Campbell Bower, most well known for his role as Caius in the Twilight movies.
2. Ed Speelers, who played Eragon.
3. Leebo Freeman, a newcomer.
