For the uninitiated (including me), The Mortal Instruments is a series of novels by Cassandra Clare, about a heroine ClaryFray who has The Sight. She can see demons and Shadowhunters and one of these Shadowhunters is Jace Wayland, who helps Clary find her mother after she is abducted. We knew Lily Collins was set to play Clary Fray and now Mr Campbell Bower has apparently been cast as Jace Wayland. Those who pay significant attention to such things will know that Campbell Bower has previously starred in Burton’s Sweeney Todd, RocknRolla, New Moon and Deathly Hallows Pt 1. Obviously this makes him far from a novice, but expect this role to have the potential to send him stratospheric. Or it might not.
Scott Charles Stewart (Priest, Legion) is still attached to direct.
