Producer Don Carmody sprak zich uit over verfilming van City of Bones die uitkwam in 2013.

“Disappointed when something does $150 million? Yes, unfortunately we were,” he admitted. “We were hoping it was going to be another Twilight or [Hunger Games] or whatever, and it didn’t go that way.”

Carmody zei dat er hoop is voor de fans om alsnog de boeken van Cassandra Clare verfilmd te zien worden.

“The story is so broad and the novels are so dense that we’re actually now talking about doing it as a limited series for television.”

Het zou dan gaan om één boek per televisie seizoen/jaar. Als deze succes heeft zouden ook de overige boeken moeten volgen. Er zou als een showrunner aangesteld zijn, en de pilot aflevering zou al klaar zijn.

Gisteren werd er bekend dat er een “casting call” open is voor de pilot van de serie, die in Vancouver (Canada) opgenomen zou gaan worden en mógelijk bij televisie zender ABC Family zou verschijnen.

De pilot zou “The Mortal Cup” moeten gaan heten.

Het lijkt er dus op dat we tóch een verfilming (weliswaar als tv serie) gaan krijgen?
