City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy)

I know this series is not very popular yet, but I thought it was a fantastic read after I finished HP. I just found out it is going to be made into a trilogy by the makers of LOTR!!! It's set for release 2012. I know it's a long ways off, but I can't wait. I know it will be amazing.

Here's the link:

For those unfamiliar with it, here's the link to the official website. It kind of reminded me of the later hp books when harry was older, but this series definitely runs much darker.

Re: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy)

I had no idea they were making these books into movies when I read them! So, I'm extremely excited! (Honesly, I am DYING for City of Fallen Angels to come out in a couple of weeks, but that's another story!) Honestly, I can definitely see Alex Pettyfer (sp?) as Jace! To me, he's got the right attitude and hair () for the part. As for anyone else, well, that's still out there, but it's going to be quite an interesting movie!!

Wow, I forgot that I started this thread over a year ago! I thought maybe no one who was a fan of hp read MI and I had given up:lol

I can't wait for COFA as well.

As for the movie, they have cast lily Collins as clary. She looks perfect for it. At the end of January, they had offered the part of Jace to alex pettyfer and I was ecstatic. It was as if the studio actually listened to the fans. It looked like it was a done deal, until Alex and his agents allegedly asked for 10milliom dollars which upset the studio execs who then decided to issue an open casting call for Jace. I think back then, alex's people thought I am number four and beastly were going to be huge hits.

I still hope Alex and the studios come to a deal but it looks bleak. I just hope they find someone who can do Jace justice.

Here are some of the news links:

It looks like Alex pettyfer is still up for Jace. I still hope he accepts.

Re: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy) 2012

Now it seems that Jamie bower (young gellert grindewald) is the top choice to play Jace. I guess he does already have the hair :lol and has been a part of two big franchises (hp and twilight) albeit in minor roles. He just was not my mental image of Jace, but I guess I will try to warm up to it if this is how it plays out. It is such a shame Alex did not take it. I can't believe he would rather play a young chaining tatum as a male stripper than the lead in MI but I guess that is his preference.

Re: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy) 2012

It looks like Jamie (young gellert grindewald) has been officially cast as Jace. This is definitely going to take some getting used to since he just not what I pictured, but if he can act I suppose that is what matters.

Me too. I just can' t see it. I wonder why it didn't work out with Alex Pettyfer. Here was a fanmade pic awhile back. He really would have been perfect, but I guess that ship has sailed.

Re: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy) 2012

I've only read City of Bones (and Clockwork Angel, but that's not the point) and I think the person they cast for Jace is not the mental image I had in my mind....I pictured someone less....scrawny.

Well, he could always bulk up for the role. I'll come up with an opinion for him as Jace once I see a trailer.

I was pretty disappointed with his casting at first, but most of the time I end up being pleasantly surprised so I will try and give him the benefit of the doubt. The author said alex pettyfer turned down the role and that at least the role went to someone who actually wanted it. So, hopefully he can pull it off even though he wasn't what I pictured jace to look like at all.

Re: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy) 2012

News on this movie has been pretty much nonexistent for awhile ever since Jace was cast which seems like eons ago. They were supposed to start filming in Jan but that was postponed as well. Initially, I was getting concerned that maybe it wasn't going to happen at all.

However, Cassie has been on a book tour for clockwork prince and she said apparently the powers that be did not like the first script which, shockingly left out Magnus and the whole Jace/Clary brother-sister issue. I was wondering how they were going to handle the latter, but I guess the first screenwriter must have given up and just omitted it all together ! :lol

The new script is supposedly much more true to the book but it is still pending approval from all the people involved.

This movie without Magnus Bane?! They better clear that up in the script or I will not be attending this movie.

I totally agree! He is such a fun character. I guess it never ceases to amaze me how much they change with these book adaptations. I was pretty shocked they would omit a character that is in all the books, including the prequels! I am not sure what the first screenwriter was thinking. Then again I remember with percy jackson they omitted kronos and clarissa. That would sort of be like omitting malfoy and voldemort in HP. Maybe Jill Postigo (the first screenwriter) was trying to streamline the movie as much as possible.

Re: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy) 2012

I thought this movie was never going to get made after screen gems dropped it and the director (scott stewart) was out of the picture as well.

However, it looks like it is being given another shot with new director. Here's hoping it actually gets made!

Re: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy) 2012

Hopefully it gets a fresh perspective and it won't be delayed any longer or the interest will wear off soon.

Yes, I agree. I think the movie lost a lot of steam when they could not get Alex pettyfer last year. Lily was actually cast as Clary for city of bones before Jennifer Lawrence was cast as katniss. I remember Alex being up for both jace and peeta a year ago. It actually seemed like mortal instruments would get made at around the same time frame as HG as it was supposed to start filming in the spring of last year. Now of course, a year later, HG is on the verge of being a huge hit while city of bones is still looking for a release date- assuming it gets made.

At least they have a start date for filming set- aug 15. They have 4 months i guess to lock down the cast. I was surprised they chose the director of the karate kid remake for this, but he might be better than the original director Scott Stewart since he seemed to be more interested in the special efx I.e. vampire motorcycles than anything else. I guess that isn't too surprising since he directed priest and legion. It sounds like the new director is more interested in the characters.

Robert Sheehan is Simon, you may know him from Misfits as Nathan.

Here's the source: http://www.hypable.com/2012/07/11/ro...l-instruments/

I haven't seen Robert in action, but a lot of people seem very happy about this based on the comments.

I have never seen him in anything, but he seems like he would be a good fit.

They have also cast Magnus with a prior model named Godfrey Gao. All I can say is..wow Not to sound too fan girlish, but I never expected Magnus to be hotter than Jace! :lol

http://cassandraclare.tumblr.com/pos...ws-magnus-bane

I also like who they have cast as Jocelyn ( Lena Headey from Game of Thrones) and Hodge.

http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplayli...bones-20120719

They have also cast Aidan turner as Luke. I have never seen him in anything either but he does look like he would be fine. I guess he is in the hobbit too.

http://www.movieweb.com/news/the-mor...nd-cch-pounder


Although all this casting news has not received anywhere near the hype that hunger games did, I am just glad that the movie is actually happening. The only actor that I still have a hard time with is Jamie as Jace. However, I am sure he is going to turn out fine because I remember being worried about Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and she turned out to be phenomenal.

Re: City of Bones (Mortal Instruments Trilogy) 2013?

Here are some set photos. Wow, can't believe this movie is actually getting made! "Alec" is definitely not what I pictured but Jamie is actually looking pretty Jace like in all that black leather. I am pleasantly surprised.
