Mortal Instruments Coming To TV As Shadowhunters!

Cassandra Clare

When The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was released in theaters, I said “Despite its two hours-plus running time, City of Bones manages to introduce all kinds of plot points without ever giving us of the rules that cause its world to function in the way that it does.”

Now, ABC Family has ordered a The Mortal Instruments TV series called Shadowhunters. The series – which will tell the story of Clary, the 18-year old who discovers that all legends are true and that she has a crucial role to play in a world where the supernatural is real – will have the opportunity to get it right.

Mortal Instruments author Cassandra Clare said, of the move by ABC Family, “I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the Shadowhunters to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters.”

The series goes into production in May. Casting news will be released later. For more, follow the jump.

We conclude our three part interview with Lily Collins, Kevin Zegers and Jamie Campbell Bower from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Much like we started, with getting them to reconfirm their commitment to taking this long journey with the fans. In this last installment we talk about what it was like to be Hall H at Comic Con and getting a standing ovation from 6,000 people, whether or not they are committed to the full duration (the book series is at 7 and is projected to have 9 installments) and we talk a bit about possible casting options for fan favorite Tessa Grey (who first appears in Book 3, City of Glass).

Kevin Zegers in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

EclipseMagazine.com launched 18 years ago, since then we’ve interviewed hundreds of people, but I never forgot our first victim – Kevin Zegers.  He was a young, up and coming 10 or 12 year old star at the time having appeared on an Episode of the X-Files and starring in Air Bud: Golden Retriever.  All of these years later, if the reception at San Diego Comic Con is any indication, his career is about to go to the next level with his star turn in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – which is being billed as the next Twilight Saga.

I recently had a chance to catch up with Kevin and thank him for being our first Interview, along for the conversation were his two co-stars: Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower. In part 1 of this 3 part interview, we talk a bit about what it is like to know that they are getting ready to embark on a long 5 or 10 year Journey (assuming this becomes a huge franchise) and whether they fear typecasting. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens everywhere August 21, 2013.
