City of Ashes delayed

(Dutch below the cut)

According to The Wrap, Martin Moszkowicz confirmed to them that the production has shut down indefinitely. A subsequent press release from Constantin did not address when production may resume.

“Constantin Film has a long tradition of adapting books to the big screen. Pushing back the start of production of ‘City of Ashes’ was a decision we did not take lightly. But after speaking with all of our partners on the creative and distribution side, it was clear that it will be beneficial to have more time to reposition the film in the current market place,” said executive producer Martin Moszkowicz of Constantin. “‘The Mortal Instruments’ series has an incredibly loyal and ardent fan base and is a bestselling book series. While taking Cassandra Clare’s vision to the screen, we want to make sure to draw on the full potential of the franchise.”

In addition The Wrap says that, 

“The decision to delay “City of Ashes” was made several days ago after Constantin spoke with its international distributors at the Toronto International Film Festival, Moszkowicz told TheWrap. While Constantin is committed to making the sequel, the company did not want to rush into production with an unfinished screenplay, preferring to take the time to get right.”

 

On August 15 Harald Zwart still tweeted that he was back in Toronto to work on the storyboard, which certainly gives credence to the press release.

Furthermore, Martin Moszkowicz tweeted that he has the utmost respect for the TMI fandom, and that they want to make City of Ashes right and make good use of the time.

Hopefully Constantin will be able to give us a new start of filming date soon. In the meanwhile, let us support the production team in any way we can!

 

——————–

Volgens website The Wrap, heeft Martin Moszkowicz bevestigd dat de productie van City of Ashes voor onbepaalde tijd is stilgelegd. Een persbericht van Constantin vermeld nog geen datum wanneer de productie weer hervat wordt.

“Constantin Film has a long tradition of adapting books to the big screen. Pushing back the start of production of ‘City of Ashes’ was a decision we did not take lightly. But after speaking with all of our partners on the creative and distribution side, it was clear that it will be beneficial to have more time to reposition the film in the current market place,” said executive producer Martin Moszkowicz of Constantin. “‘The Mortal Instruments’ series has an incredibly loyal and ardent fan base and is a bestselling book series. While taking Cassandra Clare’s vision to the screen, we want to make sure to draw on the full potential of the franchise.”

Aanvullend daarop zegt The Wrap dat, 

“The decision to delay “City of Ashes” was made several days ago after Constantin spoke with its international distributors at the Toronto International Film Festival, Moszkowicz told TheWrap. While Constantin is committed to making the sequel, the company did not want to rush into production with an unfinished screenplay, preferring to take the time to get right.”

 Op 15 Augustus tweete regisseur Harald Zwart nog dat hij terug in Toronto was om aan het storyboard te werken, en dit geeft zeker geloofwaardigheid aan het persbericht.

Tevens heeft Martin Moszkowicz getweet dat hij het hoogste respect heeft voor het TMI fandom, en dat ze City of Ashes goed willen maken en de tijd goed willen besteden.

Hopelijk kan Constantin snel een nieuwe productie datum aangeven! Laten we ondertussen het productie team op alle mogelijke manieren steunen!
