Sigounrey Weaver

In another clear sign of confidence in its fledgling Mortal Instruments franchise, Constantin Film is looking to lock in the services of Sigourney Weaver for the planned second entry in the series, The Mortal Instruments: City Of Ash.

The film will continue the story of Clary Fray (Lily Collins), who learns in City Of Bones that she’s a Shadowhunter who can see and fight demons and is introduced to a whole new world of monsters, werewolves and other supernatural types she never knew existed.

Weaver is in talks to play the ruthless leader of the Shadowhunters, driven by an insatiable desire to destroy the man who killed her son. If she signs on, she’ll join a returning cast that includes Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Kevin Zegers, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jemima West and Robert Sheehan, with director Harald Zwart also planning to be back behind the camera.

With an October shooting date already in the diary, the Mortal Instruments film series appears ready to make full use of Cassandra Clay’s tomes, with work also underway on a prequel based on Infernal Devices. The first film, meanwhile, comes out here on August 21.

Your Comments

Should Constantin Films not wait and see if the first film is a hit before making too many inroads on sequels? Nothing's been released yet and, based on the trailers I've seen, City Of Bones just seems like more of the same teen supernatural nonsense infecting cinemas constantly. However, for every Twilight, there's all too many lesser examples like Beautiful Creatures. Even The Host's failure to bring in big numbers is a sign that the public won't keep blindly accepting this sort of stuff. More

"To play the ruthless leader of the Shadowhunters"??? Er, No.
SHE WON'T... She will in fact be playing Inquisitor Imogen Herondale, who is the head of the Shadowhunter 'police' force... there IS no "leader of the Shadowhunters"! It is run by a Council... A tad more effort to report news correctly is warranted please Empire! ;-D More
