Big news reported yesterday by Vulture
about Screen Gems’ adaptation of Cassandra Clare
’s The Mortal Instruments
series. Not only is it true, but get this! British model turned actor Alex Pettyfer
has been tapped to play the role of Jace Wayland in “City of Bones,”
the first installment of Clare’s popular tweeny, young adult series.
Infact, insiders tell Vulture that Screen Gems chief Clint Culpepper will give the supernatural love story a green-light only with Pettyfer in the role. No official announcements just yet. So, until then just try not to bite your entire finger nails off in anticipation.
The Clare series, surely to tap into that ‘Twilight’ craze tells the story of teenage girl who gets in with a group of “Shadowhunters” who hunt down demons in New York streets. City of Bones, the first installment of this (we foresee) soon to be mega- franchise quickly became a best seller when it hit the shelves in 2007. P(r)ettyfer will appear in next month’s sci-fi movie I Am Number Four
