The Mortal Instruments Will Become a TV Series

For what its worth I really quite liked The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones- it had a nice, attractive cast, some sense of humour and decent action. As YA goes, I was very much entertained. So, predictably, no one went to see it.

That's not quite true but the $60 million budgeted flick pulled down just over $90 million worldwide. That's not bad, but is far off expectations when it comes to such a well-known series by Cassandra Clare. Rumours of a sequel film have continued to circulate but it seems that's off the cards now. Instead, its going to be coming to TV.

That makes a lot of sense - City of Bones was fun but lost a lot of material from the books and that's only going to get worse as the increasingly dense story continues. You have to wonder just how much cross over there'll be from the movie to television - its unlikely the stars will make the transition (though not impossible as several of them have had TV roles before) but will they use it as a jumping off point or start the whole cycle again?

These questions and many more have yet to be answered and we'll likely not find out for quite a while, with Ed Decter just hired as the showrunner and scripts yet to be put together.

Expect more news on The Mortal Instruments TV show next year.
