Are there any The Mortal Instrument fans out there? I have information for you guys regarding the upcoming TV show. If you haven’t heard, TMI is going to be repurposed into a TV show to see if that goes better than the movie did.
Yesterday we found out a few things:
The network will be ABC family. Honestly I was hoping for a higher budget network like HBO, Starz, or maybe even The CW.
It will start with the first book! There has been a lot of speculation that it will jump to City of Ashes, the second book and continue on where the movie left off. The pilot is just a sample but the name of the sample is titled “The Mortal Cup”
Filming Information: Vancouver starting May 2015
As of right now, there is an open casting call in LA for the positions of Clary, Jace, and Simon. So it doesn’t look like the previous main characters will be reprising their roles. What do you guys think? Are you excited? Also, it wasn’t that I didn’t like TMI movie, it was that there was so much squeezed into a small amount of time. It seemed very rushed and in turn I just wasn’t pleased with the outcome. So an hour per episode will definitely be a lot more time to fit detailed information into the TV show. When doing a book adaptation into a movie or TV show, I think the most important thing is staying loyal to the novel or series.
Meanwhile, I’ll post some dream celebrity casting for some of the characters :) Since they are looking for a new cast I'm not going to put any of the old actors on here. Also, I know that a lot of these people have current projects so it most likely wouldn't work - it's just for fun!
