The back-to-back floppery of "Beautiful Creatures" and "The Host" has left a lot of industry folks confused about the perceived ticketing draw of Young Adult book-to-film properties. Aren't these movies supposed to be raking in gobs of dough and keying up innumerable sequels, the last of which will be a two-parter of some sort? Where are all the ladies and their signs at the midnight lines and the tattoos and such? To that we say, see the list. Know the list. The formula is much more complicated than it might seem.
We've been following the progress on Sony Screen Gems' "The Mortal Instruments" with bated breath for what seems like years now - inch by inch, casting announcement by casting announcement - so we're as amped as any Shadowhunter out there that things are finally underway for production on the book-to-film adaptation of Cassandra Clare's first installment "City of Bones," the same movie which you voted (overwhelmingly) to be summer 2013's most anticipated.
Even better, we'll be heading up to the Toronto set very shortly to get the goods on production from Cassie Clare herself - along with director Harald Zwart and the series' principle castmembers Lily Collins (Clary Fray), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace Wayland), Robert Sheehan (Simon Lewis), Kevin Zegers (Alec Lightwood), Jemima West (Isabelle Lightwood) and Godfrey Gao (Magnus Bane) - and we'd love to hear what you'd like to know from the stars!

[From MTV.com] He's played a dark wizard and a villainous vamp, but actor Jamie Campbell Bower is tackling his most physically demanding role yet in the upcoming "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" as demon-destroying Shadowhunter Jace Wayland.
Based upon the urban fantasy series by Cassandra Clare, "City of Bones" stars Lily Collins as a Brooklyn teen who discovers she's a descendant of an ancient line of half-human, half-angel warriors tasked with protecting Earth from dark forces. Campbell Bower plays her love interest in the film, and the actress had plenty of accolades for her co-star when MTV News caught up with her at the Toronto International Film Festival recently, where she was supporting another film, "Writers."

Fans of Cassandra Clare's "The Mortal Instruments" series will agree that casting for the "City of Bones" movie has been one hellaciously long process. Consider this: The first actor announcement came down nearly two years ago.
However, as the spiffy new official movie website for "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" now shows, there are very few spaces left open on the casting roster. In fact, this week "The Tudors" star Jonathan Rhys Meyers might've nabbed the biggest opening left (he's reportedly in talks to star as Valentine Morgenstern, the brainy and sadistic arch-villain of the series).

The "Twilight" gang has stayed plenty busy since launching straight into the cultural zeitgeist four years ago, and some of the franchise actors have had much more luck than others when it comes to scoring impressive and interesting roles.
One nabbed an Oscar nom, two had films in competition at Cannes this year, and another headlines an exciting new J.J. Abrams series this fall. Others have endured critical and box office flops, straight-to-DVD blunders and yes, even a Razzie "win."
Until this weekend, though, none have stretched their legs into new series territory -- but Kristen Stewart really puts her box-office muster to the test as she moves from the damp world of Forks into the clutches of Ravenna's evil queen-dom for "Snow White and the Huntsman." In celebration of her second franchise bid, we take a look at what all of the "Twilight" kids have been up to since first making their mark on modern pop culture not too long ago.
Watching progress on the film adaptation of Cassandra Clare's "The Mortal Instruments" has been giving us a slight case of whiplash, but lately things have started to look up for the project and now a release date for the picture has been announced as August 23, 2013.
Go ahead, mark your calendars. We'll wait.
Less than two months ago, a studio scramble began when Sony's Screen Gems dropped their option for the film, sending "Mortal Instruments" fans into a tizzy, but now Sony's back on board for the movie and looks to have it in theaters just a year after the announced shooting start date.
Both Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower are still in the picture, set to portray leads Clary Fray and Jace Wayland respectively, and Cassandra Clare teased fans that she, Collins, and the new director, Harald Zwart, have someone in mind for the third major series character Simon. Get More »
Lovers of Cassandra Clare's "The Mortal Instruments" series were a bit shell-shocked to learn this weekend that Sony's Screen Gems decided to let go of its rights to adapt the film.
The movie was rumored to be heading into production this fall, with Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower cast as leads. Scott Stewart ("Priest," "Legion") was slated to direct, and many predicted it'd be the next "big thing" behind "Harry Potter," "Twilight," and the forthcoming "The Hunger Games."
But is it really dead in the water? Get More »
Some actors would make deals with the devil for Jamie Campbell Bower's resume. In only five years of theatrical work, the 22-year-old Englishman has already played bit parts in both the "Harry Potter" and the "Twilight" sagas (as wizard Gellert Grindelwald and vampire Caius, respectively), and is set to star as the lead in "The Mortal Instruments" series, which very well could be the next teen movie phenomenon.
But who is this guy, and why should you know who he is? Get More »
Fans of "The Mortal Instruments" have been waiting a long time for the film adaptation to arrive, but now there's good news: "Pretty Little Liars" writer I. Marlene King is hard at work on a new version of the script and she expects to have it done by the end of the month.
That's just one of the many juicy tidbits King dropped in a brand new interview with Hollywood Crush. Also revealed? What she thinks of stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, what her favorite scene in the movie is and what, exactly, she talks to "Mortal Instruments" author Cassandra Clare about when they jam on the phone.
So head on over to Hollywood Crush and get pumped. Because ready or not, "The Mortal Instruments" is -- at last -- coming to life.
Basking in Hollywood’s limelight definitely beats burning the midnight oil.
After years of preparation, a whole clique of freshman talents is primed to ace roles in this season's classiest movies. While each of these populars may already be stars, only one can claim the title of MTV's "New Class" President. Page though the yearbook and vote for the actor that you think schools the rest.
Role call: Jamie Campbell Bower is present and certain to sparkle in 2012's "The Mortal Instruments," though we’re sure co-star Lily Collins will abduct plenty of the hearts as well. Amy won Ricky's in ABC Family's "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" -- will Shailene Woodley rouse the chops to deliver on the big screen when "The Descendants" bows?
You'll have to choose between them -- as well as Julianne Hough, Josh Hutcherson, Emma Watson, Nina Dobrev, Ezra Miller, Logan Lerman and Sarah Gadon -- when you vote. Now go vote!
