Books who become Movies News

The latest news on books that are being turned into movies. 

City of Bones
Author: Cassandra Clare
Released: March 27th 2005
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry

Summary: (from goodreads) When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing - not even a smear of blood - to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy? 

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know.... 

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare's ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

We have had some exciting news floating around this week for City of Bones. Cassandra Clare on the 20th make a post in regards to the news. She has a few links where Lily Collins is talking about playing Clary. Then she also has the latest regarding Alex Pettyfer and if or when he would be cast possibly for the part of Jace. So if you haven't been to Cassandra's website CLICK HERE to be taken there. 

I think Lily was a great choice for Clary and Alex now that Ive seen him in different pictures and interviews, I believe would also be the right Jace. I know quite a few of you out there agree with me.

  1. Besides the fact that movies are never like the books, do you see a reaccuring face..Alex P. He is in the City of Bones, I am number 4, Beastly, etc. Its like all of a sudden there are no other teen male actors..its not cool. I am not a huge fan so I don't want to see his face on all the cool movies! :(

  2. I think Alex Pettyfer is PERFECT for Jace! I keep waiting for the confirmation that he's doing the movie. Hope it happens!!

    And yay Breaking Dawn!

  3. Alex is perfect for Jace!! I am so excited for this movie!!

    I actually agree with you. Alex Pettyfer might look like Jace, but I was kind of hoping for an unknown. I also kind of feel like he's a little too old for Jace. I know most actors portray characters several years younger than themselves, but Alex Pettyfer just doesn't seem to have the kind of witty, sarcastic look with him.

    I can't wait to see what will happen with the casting.

  5. I always enjoy book-to-movie related posts. Thanks for sharing!
