City of Bones - They Are Filming It

A couple of years ago I picked up the first book of The Mortal Instrument series called City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It was entertaining though had its share of problems with the writing. Like some serious plot issues. But the story flowed well enough that you can overlook most of the plot issues while reading it.

I have so far read four in series and a both of the books from the prequel series Infernal Devices. Not as good as the Hunger Games or Divergent series, but entertaining for sure. I might do a review of each book in the series when I decide to re-read them in a couple weeks since it's been so long since when I first whipped though them.

But like I said, they have some plot issues.

The biggest one from what I remember is




is that Clary falls in love with Jace... WHO IS HER BROTHER.


Yeah. That's what you find out at the end of the book.

How does this work for something they are making into a movie? Oh you hadn't heard they are making City of Bones into a movie? Neither did I until I came across this cast photo via MTV. They are currently shooting in Toronto right now with the movie projected to be out in summer 2013.

Now if you keep reading in the series,

***another SPOILER ALERT*** find out that Clary and Jace are not technically blood relatives, but that they both received angel's blood and instead Sebastian is actually her brother. Oh, and Clary makes out with Sebastian in City of Glass (the third book) before getting back together with Jace. Yeah this family is f-cked up.

I have no idea how the script will make sense to someone who hasn't read the series. The ending is just soleft field. And if you have read the series, how does Jamie Campbell Bower get casted as Jace? Who was responsible for this? He's not what I pictured Jace should look like.

But Lily Collins with that red hair as Clary, yeah I can see it. And Robert Sheehan as Simon....almost seems too hot to be Simon, but I'll roll with that.
