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?

A family with supernatural abilities? Check.
Teens with mind bending powers? Check and Double Check.
Actor Jackson Rathbone is negotiating for a recurring role on the new ABC sci-fi show No Ordinary Family. NOF is centered around the Powell family and the crazy abilities they gain after being involved in a plane crash. Rathbone’s Trent Stafford would befriend Daphne, the Powell daughter (played by Kay Panabaker) who is telepathic, to help find the criminals behind his family’s home invasion.
Anything that gives us more Jackson is fine by me.
The series debut is Tuesday September 28th.

Good news to everyone who has been watching The Vampire Diaries - Variety is reporting that the CW Network is ordering nine more scripts for the sci-fi drama starring Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Wesley.
As for “Diaries,” the CW has picked up nine more scripts – a good sign that a full-season order is in the cards. And it’s no surprise: Show holds the record as the CW’s most-watched premiere ever (4.9 million viewers).
One Tree Hill is also getting thirteen more eps and Melrose Place (yawn!) is getting six more.
I love Somerhalder’s evil Damon. I miss him on LOST as Boone, but look forward to his return on the island (or where ever the castaways may be…)
