CCH Pounder has joined the cast of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, yet another upcoming film adaptation of a YA novel - the first in a series of 6 Mortal Instruments novels penned by Cassandra Clare

The short story goes:

When her mom is attacked and taken from their home in New York City by a demon, a seemingly ordinary teenage girl, Clary Fray, finds out truths about her past and bloodline, on her quest to get her mother back, that change her entire life.

Pounder, who currently appears in the Syfy series Warehouse 13, will play a character named Madame Dorothea.

Just who is Madame Dorothea? According to the Mortal Instruments wiki:

A witch who is neighbors with Clary and her mother. Madame Dorothea initially seems unimportant, but soon has an encounter with Clary and Jace in which she prophesizes that Jace will fall in love with the wrong person and that Clary has a very confusing future. She also has a Portal in her home, which is Clary and Jace's convenient exit from their meeting. She flares in importance when the Shadowhunters discover that Clary's mother, Jocelyn, actually drew the Mortal Cup into a tarot card in a deck she gifted to Madame Dorothea many years ago. Madame Dorothea is astonished at this acclamation. Clary quickly draws a rune, helping her to withdraw the cup, at which point a Greater Demon arises from the Portal and possesses Madame Dorothea. Her form is quickly changed to meet the demon's wishes, and it is said by the demon that Madame Dorothea is no more.

You mean she dies in the end...? Any of you reading this familiar with the series of novels care to chime in?

Pounder joins stars of the film, Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, as well as Lena Headey, Jared Harris, Robert Sheehan and Kevin Durand.

The film is scheduled to start shooting this summer in Toronto for a summer 2013 release.
