Today, she took to Tumblr to share the news that shooting for "The Mortal Instruments" will begin, finally, on August 15.
This tidbit comes on the heels of a shake-up that happened last month when Sony Screen Gems dropped the project, leaving Constantin Films in charge of making the book-to-film adaptation, which many expect could swell to "Twilight"/"The Hunger Games" size.
Clare also announced that, despite her increasingly busy schedule, Lily Collins is still on board to portray Clary Fray in the film and that she's currently giving "meaningful consultation" to the casting director for the role of Simon, as she did with Jamie Campbell Bower for the role of Jace Wayland.
"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," Clare wrote.
Collins previously discussed her thoughts on casting Simon with MTV, noting that she'd heard the name Logan Lerman thrown around the fanbase quite a bit for the role. Also, Lily Collins and Logan Lerman are currently working together on "Writers," so Clare's statement that she might be able to talk him into it may have something to do with that. Of course, Lerman has his hands full at the moment with his own book-to-film franchise, "Percy Jackson & The Olympians."
Other fan favorites for the part include Max Irons and Simon Reed.
Who do you think should get the part?
