Clary Fray

Adaptations of the Cassandra Clare-penned books best known as ‘The Mortal Instruments Series” have been in the works for a while. The first substantial bit of news about them was that Lily Collins would be playing the protagonist, Clary Fray, and then came word that Jamie Campbell Bower would be playing the smoldering bad boy character of the books, Jace Wayland. But that was a long time ago, and we haven’t heard much since. Fear not, these movies are still getting made, and we should be hearing a lot more about them from this point on, because they’ve finally just announced a director. According to Deadline Alacante, the director of the Karate Kid remake, Harald Zwart, is on board to make the first film in the series. The press release they cite also confirms the ages-old casting of Collins, so fans of the series don’t need to start all over again picturing a new Clary in their heads.

Have you been shedding tears now that casting news for The Hunger Games is starting to die down? Fear not, because the next big series of young adult novels to be adapted to the big screen The Mortal Instruments is starting to fill its cast out as well, so we should have a whole new batch of casting decisions to scrutinize soon. “The Mortal Instruments” is a series of fantasy novels written by Cassandra Clare. They focus on the lead character of Clary Fray (the already cast Lily Collins), a teenage girl who discovers that she has the ability to see a whole world of demons and demon hunters that it hidden from the view of mortal men. As she starts exploring this new world, she comes across the typical teen fantasy novel stuff; the revelation that she is a very important figure in a very powerful bloodline, a love triangle between a dangerous bad boy and a sensitive quiet type, and a bunch of battles with yucky things that go bump in the night. The big news coming out of Mortal Instruments casting is that they’ve found their man (boy?) to play the character of Jace Wayland.
