blo Teens Read and Write: CITY OF BONES Movie News!

Friday, December 17, 2010


Exciting news! 
Lily Collins has been cast to play Clary in the City of Bones movie.  I think she works great!

- Age: 21
- Daughter of famed Genesis musician/singer Phil Collins
- Played the daughter, Collins, in the movie The Blind Side
- Recently rumored to be dating Abduction co-star Taylor Lautner (Wait - he's cheating on me?!)
I knew I should have called him back!
Upcoming Movies: 
Abduction. Tough gig. She plays Taylor Lautner's girlfriend in this action/thriller. Sept 2011 release.

Priest. Release May 2011. (This one looks like a blast!) 

A post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills. 

Check out this cast!!

Paul Bettany (loved him in Knight's Tale and he was in Legion earlier this year. Also been in Inkheart and currently in The Tourist - we love him!), Maggie Q (awesome on TV's Nikita), Cam Gigandet (James from Twilight - he's so hot!) Stephen Moyer (Bill on True Blood). 

And you gotta watch this trailer!

What do you think of Lily Collins as Clary? 

What do you think of Priest and it's beautiful cast?


Who do you think should play Jace?
My pick? While Cam Gigandet is looking good, I'm still going with...
The gorgeous Alex Pettyfer

Don't you just love all the eye candy in this post?

Can't wait to hear what you think!

Lily looks great for Clary's part. And of course I'm totally Team Alex for JACE!! :D I wouldn't mind having Paul Bettany somewhere in the movie...he's good!

Emma said...

That's it! I must have these books! I've never read them and with movie news going on, I KNOW I'm seriously missing out by not reading them. I just hope that I've let them be built up to be amazing and then I'm bored by them. It's been happening a lot.

I like Lily Collins, but as I haven't read the books...yet...I don't know if she'll be good for the part. She probably will be though.

Stina said...

Lily's great for the part. It doesn't matter who they pick for Jace, I'll probably still be disappointed. But I'm definitely seeing the movie either way. :D

Aylee said...

I'm so excited about Lily getting the part. I think she'll do a great job! And I think there will be an uprising in the fandom if Alex P. is not cast as Jace.

Anonymous said...

I loved these books...I cant wait until book 4 next year!! BTW I loved all the eye candy..:D

YA Book Queen said...

Lol, I'm loving the eye candy! =)

And Priest looks awesome, plus it definitely looks like Lily Collins will make an awesome Clary.

Blodeuedd said...

Wanna see all those movies :D Yay, good movies, totally need those

Alyssa Kirk said...

Maidenveil: Great idea! Paul could be the villain!

Emma: That can be tough - but at least try City of Bones. My adoration of the series is all about Jace. You'll love him!

Stina: I'm seeing it too no matter what. I can't imagine Alex being a disappointment. But when it comes to him, I'm easy to please - those looks, that accent. I'm swooning already!

Aylee: I like her too. And I'll be part of the uprising - You with me?

Tina: I'm also a huge fan! Sooooo happy about the 4th book. Glad you enjoyed the eye candy!

Lea: I think she's good too. Funny but I'm more worried about the Jace casting than the Clary. Guess you can see where my hormones - I mean my HEAD - is at! Loved putting this eye candy filled post together - Yummy! I hadn't heard about Priest before but now I'm dying for it!

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

Alyssa Kirk said...

Linda: We are such movie lovers too! How long does it take to get them in Norway?

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

great post, thanks for the all the info, and pics!!

Nina said...

Okay, so I am going to read this series asap! ;)

Golden Eagle said...

I think she looks Clary's part--I've never seen her acting.

Alex Pettyfer would make a good Jace; he has the looks. :D

Alyssa Kirk said...

Carrie - Thanks and you're welcome!

Nina - Get to it! At least City of Bones and then you can decide on the other books. And you'll get to read about Jace!

TGE - You should check out The Blind Side. She doesn't have a big part but she's good and the movie is fantastic!

I'm soooooo agreeing on Alex.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I have CIty of Bones staring at me from my bookshelf telling me to read it. *sigh* It's just going to have to wait. Oh that movie, Priest, looks good!

Alyssa Kirk said...

I only discovered the movie because I was researching Lily Collins. I was so happy to find it because it looks great...but now I have to wait. Looks worth it. My only worry is that it is the same director as Legion (also starring Bettany) earlier this year and that was just okay. But cool special effects!

When you get to City of Bones, let me know what you think.

Jo-Anne said...

Thanks for sharing this. I knew she was rumored to play the part a few months ago, but I think she'll be a good Clary. I am so TOTALLY for Alex Pettyfer as Jace, too. He's about the only one who comes to close to what I imagine Jace to look like.

Priest looks awesome too.

Alyssa Kirk said...

SCR: I agree! Alex Pettyfer looks so like the cover of CoB. He's perfect!

Melissa (i swim for oceans) said...

I think Lily Collins is absolutely perfect for the role! And I have to agree - Preist looks fan-freaking-tastic! Gahhh :)

Where are those tissues...I just drooled all over my laptop...
