Now, we do have a bit of a knack for calling these things, so we shouldn’t be too surprised that another one of our Casting Couch recommendations has come true: Deadline announced yesterday that Lily nabbed the role of Clary. In the words of Deadline’s head honcho Nikki Finke: TOLDJA!
Actually, it makes a lot of sense that Lily was cast considering the fact Scott Charles Stewart was tapped to direct the flick. He directed Lily in “Priest,” the upcoming Western-style take on the classic vampire-versus-priest war.
And it’s “Priest” that is both Lily and Scott’s ticket in to “City of Bones.” “The Mortal Instruments” saga combines urban teen drama with the supernatural world in a very modern way, and “Priest” deals with both of those elements, as well. We’re just hoping “Priest” and “City of Bones” are a hell of a lot better than Scott’s first film, “Legion,” but considering his background is in special effects, we can at least be guaranteed that “City of Bones” will look pretty!
