Sony Screen Gems Sony Screen Gems

We here at NextMovie are as YA-curious as the next guy, and after paying a little visit to the Toronto, Ontario set of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" we're thinkin' that maybe Sony's gotten itself that much-fussed Next Big Thing on its hands after all.

Yep, we trekked right up to Hollywood North and took studious notes while chatting up author Cassandra Clare and the film's shockingly gorgeous cast members: Lily Collins (that ruby-tressed heroine du jour, Clary Fray), Jamie Campbell Bower (main hunk Jace Wayland), Robert Sheehan (BFF-with-a-crush Simon Lewis), Kevin Zegers (the adoptive brohan with a 'tude, Alec Lightwood) and Jemima West (whip-wielder, Isabelle Lightwood).

What Do You Want to Know About 'The Mortal Instruments'?

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!

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 last big holdout for "The Mortal Instruments" casting has finally been announced!

Alec Lightwood — that soft-spoken Nephilim whose only real fears are spiders and lost love — will be portrayed by "Gossip Girl" star (and frequenter of the horror genre) Kevin Zegers, Just Jared has now confirmed.

Alec, of course, is the older brother of Isabelle Lightwood (who'll be portrayed by Jemima West) in Cassandra Clare's novel "City of Bones," and the character has an eye for his adoptive brother Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower). So, he's not exactly a big fan of the girl who comes into the picture in the story, Clary Fray (Lily Collins). Get More »
