Mortal Instruments fans — meet your Simon!
“City of Bones” author Cassandra Clare announced earlier this week that Robert Sheehan would will the shoes of Simon, Clary’s oldest friend.
“He’s totally cute and adorable and HILARIOUS, and his chemistry with Lily [Collins] and Jamie [Campbell Bower] is off the charts,” she wrote. “I’ve wanted him for Simon for ages so I am pretty much totally and entirely happy.”
Simon has harbored a secret crush on Clary for a long time, as well as Isabelle who will be played by Jemima West.

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.
Jamie Campbell Bower slicks back his hair as he attends the 2012 Elle Style Awards held at The Savoy Hotel on Monday evening (February 13) in London, England.
The 23-year-old actor is also pictured below at the 2012 British Academy Film Awards over the weekend, where he presented Ludovic Bource with the Music Award.

According to THR, Screen Gems, the studio set to produce the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare‘s Mortal Instruments has pulled out of the project.
Director Scott Stewart is also out of the project, but Ms. Clare says not to worry.
She writes on her official site, “Really, this makes no difference to anything. I know words like ‘dropped’ sound shocking and horrifying but in this context, it doesn’t mean much. I talked to Constantin [Film] last week and actually gave them a list of actors I liked for Simon (because why not?), and they gave me a schedule they expected to start filming by (August.)”
