The Mortal Instruments Movie in Development?
06.20.09 by REELZ
The Mortal Instruments, a young adult trilogy of books penned by former Harry Potter fan-fic writer Cassandra Clare, is rumored to be the next book-to-movie adaptation slated to hit Hollywood.
Hot on the heels of Twilight's worldwide success, numerous YA supernatural series are being snapped up faster than they're being written. Sci Fi Wire is reporting that former New Line executives Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne have a number of new projects in development, among them The Mortal Instruments.
The trilogy is all about downworlders (vampires, demons, warlocks, and faeries) and sword-wielding teen-aged shadowhunters (human-angel hybrid protectors). When 15-year-old fiery-haired Clary stumbles into this deadly New York world, and the first closely guarded mortal instrument goes missing, a years-old war is resurrected.
Have you had enough of vampires and demons yet, or do you think there's life left in the genre? One thing's for sure, Clare has a huge following. If the movie does go ahead, it could be like Twilight all over again.
