Marlene King to Write City of Bones Film Adaptation!
We love ourselves a good YA novel here at Wetpaint Entertainment, especially when supernatural hunks are involved. We could barely contain our thrills when Pretty Little Liars’ showrunner Marlene King broke the news that she’s writing the screenplay for City of Bones, the first book in The Mortal Instruments series.
Marlene tweeted the news earlier today: "They're making a movie of the Mortal Instruments and I'm happy to say [I'm] working on the script."
City of Bones will star Lily Collins as 16-year-old shadowhunter Clary Fray, and Jamie Campbell Bower as her love interest, Jace Wayland. How can you go wrong with a movie about a secret tribe of hot supernatural teens who hunt demons for kicks?
