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.

Things have been all quiet on the Taylor Lautner front for a while but that is about to change. The Twilight Saga star is hitting every tabloid with rumors that he is dating his Abduction costar, Lily Collins and now there is a sneak peek at the movie.
First the dating rumors: They originally surfaced back in July as the two were filming together in Pennsylvania. Collins, 21, who is the daughter of Genesis drummer Phil Collins and starred in The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock, was reportedly dating a stuntman and left her then boyfriend after meeting Lautner. Lautner was thought to have ended his romance with on-again off-again girlfriend Sarah Hicks before he began filming and met Collins. Those reports were denied and no sightings of the two together so the story died down. Here we are in November and reports are flying again that the two are indeed, a twosome and that Collins and Lautner have been on the down low for 4 months. If true – well played, young friends!
Abduction - photo and new synopsis: Thanks to Collider.com the brand new image of Tay and Lily with her arms wrapped around him as they huddle in the corner, we have our first view at the John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood) directed spy thriller. The new synopsis of the action film:
What would you do if you found your own picture on a missing persons website? Teen Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) finds himself facing this very dilemma. Setting out to uncover his real identity, Nathan quickly learns his parents are far from who they say they are. When the police, government agents and shadowy figures start to pursue him, Nathan’s quest for the truth erupts into a full-blown “Bourne”-like man-on-the-run thriller.
The film still doesn’t have a release date (sometime in 2011) but has an amazing cast: Signourey Weaver, Jason Issacs, Danny Glover and Alfred Molina all costar with the young actors.
Lautner is currently in New Orleans filming the last two installments of the Twilight series: Breaking Dawn but are you ready to see Lautner portray someone other than Jacob Black? Does this initial photo make you want to watch him in Abduction?
