Lining up another role in yet another crazy popular teen book series, Jamie Campbell Bower takes on the next big thing: The Mortal Instruments.
Bower, who is Caius in the Twilight series and Grindelwald in the final two Harry Potter movies, now owns the role of Shadowhunter Jace Wyland in the film based on the Cassandra Clare novels.
The 22 year-old will star opposite Lily Collins, who was cast months ago as Clary Fray.
While the fan favorite, Alex Pettyfer, apparently turned the role down, Bowers casting is causing lots of upset among fans.
Remember no one liked Robert Pattinson for Edward Cullen or Jennifer Lawrence for Katniss Everdeen either. That alone puts Jamie in good company.

Lily Collins is a dead ringer for Hollywood legend Audrey Hepburn in a photo shoot for British magazine Tatler in the June 2011 issue.
The 22 year-old recreates some of Hepburn’s iconic looks wearing pedal pusher pants, the full skirt and those short bangs. Collins looks fabulous.
While the young actress has a full plate of movies scheduled in the near future (The Brothers Grimm: Snow White is up first followed by The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and Odd Thomas film later this year) Collins talked to MTV about Abduction and her costar/boyfriend Taylor Lautner.
She told Josh Horowitz “I think it’s gonna completely shock his fans and people that necessarily don’t know him very well as Jacob that aren’t Twilight fans. I think he brings an aspect that people haven’t seen yet. It’s very very exciting.”

Getting trapped in a futuristic prison is on the horizon for Taylor Lautner. The Twilight Saga actor is attached to star in Incarceron, the adaptation of the Catherine Fisher novel.
Lautner will star as Finn, a 17 year old prisoner who has found the ability to communicate with Claudia, the daughter of the Warden of Incarceron. Claudia is headed for an arranged marriage and is convinced Finn can help her find a way out.
Lautner is working on the last of the Twilight films, Breaking Dawn. He will also star with Lily Collins in Abduction in 2011.
It’s the day for teen book/movie adaptation casting – Collins just inked a deal for City Of Bones (see that article here.)
Now if only they would announce who will star in The Hunger Games…

Lily Collins has grabbed up a role in big screen adaptation of YA novel City Of Bones. The Blind Side actress has just landed the deal to star in the film that Scott Charles Stewart will direct. Stewart and Collins have worked together before on the clergyman- turned-vampire-hunter movie Priest, starring Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet.
While the original article doesn’t say specifically which role she has (it says only “set to star”) I believe that means Collins will have the Clary Fray role (not Isabella Lightwood.) She definitely fits the physical description of Clary – 15 year old, red hair and freckles – more than Isabella.
Along with Priest, Collins also has Abduction with Taylor Lautner coming out in 2011.
I love Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series and look forward to more casting on this.

Author Cassandra Clare’s book City of Bones will (finally!) be made into a movie. The first in the teen sci-fi/fantasy series The Mortal Instruments, has a script and should start casting fairly soon. Here is the official announcement:
Screen Gems has teamed with Constantin Film and Unique Features to develop the motion picture franchise MORTAL INSTRUMENTS based on The New York Times Bestselling book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Jessica Postigo penned the script which is based on the first book in the series, City of Bones. Constantin Film’s head of Film & TV Martin Moszkowicz will executive produce and Robert Kulzer will produce the project via the Constantin Film banner along with producing partners Michael Lynne, Robert Shaye, and executive producer Dylan Sellers via their Unique Features banner.
In City of Bones, set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager Clary Fray, discovers she is the descendent of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of warriors dedicated to driving demons out of our world. When Clary’s mother disappears, she must join a daring group of young Shadowhunters on an adventure, which leads her through a city filled with mischievous fairies, eccentric warlocks, werewolf gangs and other strange creatures.
I loved the books and hope that they get a great director who can pull it off.
Now for the fun part: Who do you want as Clary, Jace, Simon, Alec and Isabelle? Everyone wants Alex Pettyfer for Jace but I think with his parts in both Beastly and I Am Number Four he would be unlikey to take a role in another sci-fi movie. I’d like to see Bonnie Wright for Clary. Any thoughts?
