My good friend Aurelia (@TMIFrance – Team #TMI International!!), who writes the ‘Shadowhunters’ blog (in France) shared some exciting details they learned in their recent visit with Cassie Clare and Holly Black! Thank you thank you mon amie!! Here are the translated goods
At the time, they hadn’t announced ‘Camelot‘ as cancelled but Cassie shared if they renewed it would push TMI back. Now that we know ‘Camelot’ HAS, filming of The Mortal Instruments may begin as early as October. We all know Alex Pettyfer was offered the role of Jace by Screen Gems, but Cassie divulged that he refused on the grounds that he didn’t want to play in another YA movie. Book Two or the Infernal Devices, ‘Clockwork Prince’, will have more Magnus. (ie info about his father and his childhood). The ‘Infernal Devices’, the ‘Mortal Instruments’ Prequels will be developed as Manga. Cassandra Clare and Holly Black refer to each other’s work. Some of the character’s are shared and pop up in each other’s stories. Portions of ‘City of Lost Souls’ will take place in Paris, thus the reason she is there writing.
Are you FREAKING flippin’ out over AP??? Really Alex? I’m so confuddled over the whole thing. It brought it all back for a second….but I’m moving forward. Holding to the JCB with all my Shadowhunter strength!!!!!! Must.Stay.Strong. *wipes tear*
And thus concludes the ever-torturous saga of the AP. Finuto. Done. Completed. Ceased. Closed. Come to an end, Compassed. Decided. Discharged. Disposed of. Done for. Done with. Ended. Finalized. In the past. Over. Over and done. Realized. Resolved. Settled. Sewn up. Shut. Stopped. Terminated. Through. Tied up. Worked out. Wound up. Wrapped up. *withers on the floor*
Hey…good news! ‘Mortal Instruments’ can start filming as soon as October!!!! FYEAH!!!
