Here’s what Cassie says:
So I can’t post much; I’m running off the airport, literally, to catch a plane home.
I had a great meeting last night with Robert (of Constantin — the people who own the movie rights to City of Bones) and Jessica (screenwriter, along with Marlene King) and the director, who had such incredibly detailed questions about the film that I found myself having to pull out my iPad and reread City of Bones because even I couldn’t remember what happened. But he did, which is an excellent sign!
Anyway, it was a great meeting — we went on for hours till they kicked us out of the restaurant and everyone was incredibly enthusiastic. Now here is an actual piece of actual news: I know people have been fretting because Lily has so many projects (she’s a popular girl) so I checked in and she is still on board. And right now the plan is for an August 15 shooting start date for City of Bones.
Yes, that’s an August shooting start date. So there, an actual piece of news. 🙂 They’re hiring a casting director now to start on the rest of the cast, and Lily has what’s called “meaningful consultation” on the roles of Jace and Simon (meaning she gets to put in her two cents, which only seems fair since she has to kiss them both) — we know she already threw in for Jamie but I will say that she definitely likes someone for Simon that a lot of you all like. Who knows, maybe she can talk him into it. Girl with good taste, our Lily.
And that’s all for now, I run to the airport, but I’ll have a bit more for you later — like the director’s name. 😉
So, we can expect a director’s name soon so that we can check out their work! And Lily likes someone as Simon? That a lot of us like? My guess is Logan Lerman, his name has been floating around this fandom for ages! Fingers crossed!
Are you excited? Who do you want to get cast as Simon?
