We have another contender to add into the post-Twilight
YA film adaptation pool. This time it's Cassandra Clare's insanely popular The Mortal Instruments
series. Adapted by Pretty Little Liars
showrunner, I. Marlene King, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
follows Clary Fray (Lily Collins), a seemingly normal teenage girl until her mother (Lena Headey) is captured by a demon and Clary begins to find out that she's not as normal (she's actually a half-angel demon warrior) as she thought.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones will hit theaters on August 23, 2013.
