Cannes: ‘Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones’ Team Returns For Sequel ‘City Of Ashes’

The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, the first movie in the series, doesn’t come out until August, but buyers will get a taste for its sequel during Cannes. Stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower are returning for part two, The Mortal Instruments: City Of Ashes, as is director Harald Zwart, and a fall start is planned. As it did with the first, Mister Smith Entertainment is selling the adaptation of the second book in Cassandra Clare’s fantasy series that’s produced by Constantin Film and Unique Features.

The first installment, which Screen Gems releases August 23, sees seemingly ordinary teenager Clary discover she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons.
