- MORTAL INSTRUMENTS
|Lily Collins will Play Snow White in Mirror Mirror|
Constantin Film and Unique Features announced today that Harald Zwart will direct actress Lily Collins, who will play the lead character, Clary Fray, in the hotly anticipated film adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s #1 best-selling book series The Mortal Instruments.
In the series' first book "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray, discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother, Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures.
Principal photography is expected to begin August 15 in Toronto. Harald Zwart, whose recent film The Karate Kid grossed over $350 million worldwide, will direct from a screenplay by Jessica Postigo and I. Marlene King.
"Lily Collins is the perfect Clary," says producer Robert Kulzer. "Harald Zwart really understands the visuals and heart of 'The Mortal Instruments.' That was crucial to us. Of course, having Cassandra Clare's support throughout and collaborating with her on this project has been especially rewarding.
