She isn’t finished writing, yet! For those fans of the series, Cassandra Clare is releasing three more books to the series. Are you surprised? I was! The next book will be released this April and is called City of Fallen Angels. It will continue to follow the adventures of Clary, Jace, Alec, and Simon. The final two installments are called City of Lost Souls and City of Heavenly Fire. The books will be told primarily from Clary’s point of view, but at times, Jace, Alec, and even Simon.
City of Bones is in the process of casting for the movie version. According to Clare’s website/blog, Clary will be played by Lily Collins (see picture below), the director signed on is Scott Charles Stewart, and the screenwriter will be Jessica Postigo. As with any film, they are proceeding with the hopes that it will be made, but it has yet to get the “greenlight” from Hollywood.
Cassandra Clare will be consulted, but ultimately has little control over the casting and screenplay.
She played sister Collins Tuoy in The Blind Side and has two other movies in post-production: Priest and Abduction.
SCOTT CHARLES STEWART
He wrote and directed 2010’s movie Legion and also has worked on the visual effects for movies, such as: The Orphanage, Iron Man, Night at the Museum, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
I found very little on Jessica in the movie business. This appears to be her first major movie experience, which to me, doesn’t bode well for the movie.
So – will it make it to the big screen? Is this Hollywood’s attempt to reinvent the Twilight phenomena? Will it be good?
Only time will tell . . . .
