The Mortal Instruments is continuing. As a television series.
The Hollywood Reporter made the announcement that The Mortal Instruments is returning as a TV series, which is currently in development and set to begin production next year. Ed Decter will act as showrunner.
“It actually makes sense to do (the novels) as a TV series,” Constantin film and TV head Martin Moszkowicz told THR. “There was so much from the book that we had to leave out of the Mortal Instruments film. In the series we’ll be able to go deeper and explore this world in greater detail and depth.”
There are no broadcast partners yet attached.
Since production is set to begin next year (2015), it sounds like they’ll begin filming on the pilot around March next year and are aiming for a spot on the Fall 2015 TV schedule. More than likely this unfortunately means they will be recasting.
So who else has heard the news. I found out a few days ago but then it was only rumour and I hadn’t gotten round to writing a post about it yet. I am over the moon and hope that when the TV shows comes out they do it properly, not loosely but fully based on the book and I also want them to redo the first book.
You see where the article ended, ‘More than likely this unfortunately means they will be recasting.’ I am not really that upset. Lily Collins was good but not amazing and her hair was totally the wrong colour, Isabelle was O.K, Alec was, meh and Jace, well… The actor for Jace was horrible, properly cringe-worthy acting. Also I want all the angelic runes to be on the dominant wrists. I know it’s a small detail, but it’s a small detail that I cannot let go of one bit. Oh and worse thing about the movie: They gave away the whole f-ing plot of the first three books with the CVlary and Jace secret plus the Simon foreshadowing.
All in all, I think it’s good they’re making it a TV show witha new direstor and cast. I only hope they get the little details, and big details right and mainly REDO THE FIRST FILM WHEN IT BECOMES A TV SERIES!!!
So what do you think? Comment you opinions below!!!
