This will not contain spoilers, calm down … 😛
Hello book-readers! So, I’ve heard that everybody’s been wondering about the City of Ashes movie. If you don’t already know, City of Ashes is the second book in The Mortal Instruments series, and the first book in the TMI series has already been made into a movie. So, I did a little research, and I managed to find a little information.
So, the City of Bones movie had a budget of 60 million USD, and it only brought in 90 million. I know that seems like a lot of money, but in the film industry, it isn’t. This was supposed to be the start of a major new franchise, since there are a lot of Shadowhunters in the world.
Also, Cassandra Clare announced on her FAQ page on her website that sadly, City of Ashes will not be made into a movie because of the disappointing income of City of Bones. But instead, it will be made into a TV show. This show stars Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray and Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland. It premiered on ABC January 12th 2016. The series began filming in Toronto in late 2015, and it’s currently filming in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
