Lily Collins: 'Mortal Instruments' Gets New Director!

Good news, Mortal Instruments fans — the flick just got a new director!

After hearing that the page-to-big-screen adaption was in a bit of a bind, Constantin Film and Unique Features announced that Harald Zwart has signed on as the new director.

In the first tale of the book series by Cassandra Clare, in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), 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.

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,” says producer Robert Kulzer in a statement via Deadline.

Jamie Campbell Bower also stars and principal photography is expected to begin August 15 in Toronto.

    I agree!

    @Lisa: Sorry, honey, but I am not the least bit jealous. She is NOT a good actress, just had daddy’s money and was bored. Everything I said is true.

  • http://xoxnima95xox nima

    shes so pretty and talented! love her

  • Potterhead

    WOW. You’re low. Get a life other than hating on an innocent actress who is just doing what she loves.

  • Jason

    I wish they had cast someone else. someone fresh and new. lily is relatively new on the scene, but i’m bored of her already… i don’t think she is a very capitvating actress, and she just kind of lacks charisma and spark to me. i would have loved to see them pick an unkown actress

  • Whatever

    @Jason: Lacks charisma and spark is exactly it. She’s just SO average.

  • Stan

    @ Whatever WOW Lisa is right you do need help. your jealousy is out of control. you are a DAFF person

  • rt

    i have a feeling this movie is going to ruin the book AND I LOVE THE BOOK. I already don’t like the cast and i completely agree with Jason. Beside, The Mortal Instruments series is set for 6 books and i doubt all 6 books are going to be made into movies.

  • elle

    She looks beautiful in that picture.

  • londonlipton

    According to the author Cassandra Clare, only the first three are being made in to films at the moment.

  • This is me

    I always got a feeling this book is going to be a movie someday…
