Book to Movie News: If I Stay, City of Bones, Incarceron, Breaking Dawn

There is a lot of Book to Movie action happening right now. Here are some of the latest announcements that we have come across:

For all of you Mortal Instruments fans (that includes us), Clary has been cast!! Lilly Collins has officially been cast to play the role of Clary Fray in the movie adaptation of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. You might remember her from The Blind Side earlier this year where she played  Collins Tuohy. I think she is beautiful and fits the character well... now who will play Jace? 

We previously posted that Dakota Fanning had been cast to play Mia in the movie adaptation of If I Stay. Sadly, it was announced that she will not be taking the role as she wants to enjoy her last semester of her senior year of high school... I say good for her and sad for us... So the question now, who is going to play Mia? 

Any thoughts on who should take her place...

Incarceron by Catherine Fisher is in pre-production planning and Taylor Lautner is set to play the role of Finn. The movies expected release is sometime in 2013. 
Thanks @thebookvixen for the update

What do you think? Will he forever be Jacob Black?

And if you have been living in a dark cave without Twitter you might have missed the TWEET HEARD 'ROUND THE WORLD by Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon. 

So we can gather that Isle Esmee has been filmed and Bella is now an official Cullen.
I don't think I can really say anything else besides bring on the honeymoon smut... PLEASE!


  1. I heard that TayLaut was going to be in the Mortal Instruments movie as well. Not sure if that's just rumor...

    I hate to say this but I think KStew would make a good Mia.

    *ducks and hides*

  2. Now that I finally seen Eclipse - I know I know lol but had to wait til it came out on DVD . But that being said I so can't wait for part one of Breaking Dawn, I am wondering where their gonna split it though?

  3. I'm wondering the same thing - where will the split point be between BD1 and BD2...?

  4. Okay I will openly admit it *blushes* I check a certain Twilight site faithfully :) And I was reading a few script spoilers... don't worry I won't put everything I read but I think they are going to split BD1/2 right after she changes.

    Oh and @BV I can't wait until Kelli sees that you recommended KStew for

  5. Nah he's awesome. I think he can definitely do it. Then again, I haven't read the book.

  6. Wow awesome post! I think Clary was cast well, I liked her in the Blind Side and thought she would make a good Katniss too. Excited for Breaking Dawn! Yay :)

  7. I think I could see Taylor Lautner as someone other than Jacob Black...

    Dying to know who is going to play Jace in City of Bones...

  8. I think Lily Collins is perfect for Clary, but I have to say I'm really, really REALLY disappointed that Taylor Lautner is Finn in Incarceron. I think it was such a regrettable casting decision :/

  9. I love these movie casting tidbits... Hmmm I don't know if I want Lautner to star in Incareron...
