You may have been asking yourself, “What on Earth happened to The Mortal Instruments Movie?” I myself had begun to believe that the film would be a no-go. Well, rest assured, I have some answers. Apparantly, the first screen play left out too much information from the book. The screenwriter even had the nerve to leave out Magnus Bane! What is a TMI book without Bane? I for one NEED him! The producers seemed to agree and hired Marlene King to re-write the entire screen play. It has been rumored that Bane is now included and that the script is more accurate to the book. Cassandra Clare recently had an interview with TheFabLife and indicated that we should expect a Spring/Summer 2013 release date. You can read the interview here. Rumors have also speculated that casting should be finished in March, 2012, and Marlene King, herself, mentioned that fliming should begin in August, 2012.
