News: The Mortal Instruments as a TV Series

‘The Mortal Instruments’ returning as a TV series

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!!!

Review:

City of Glass was the original finale for the mortal instruments series, but being so popular, fans begged Cassandra Clare to continue. This book contains many great plot twists capturing the reader. As soon as you start reading, it is impossible to stop. This book also contains great Clace (Clary and Jace) moments, as well as a huge twist that will leave you wondering ‘what’s next?’ You also see great evolution in our main characters: Clary Fray, Jace Morgenstern, Simon Lewis, Isabelle and Alec Lightwood and the high warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. The book is constantly filled with suspense, no matter what’s going on, there is always something big going on with some of the characters. After reading the first two books, I couldn’t stop myself from reading the third.
It’s probably just me but in this book I sort of did want to see Clary show a bit of a dark side, maybe join Valentine, but then that i just me. Anyway, if you’re thinking about taking a break after City of Ashes, don’t bother. Personally this was one of my favourite installments.
