The cast of The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones is certainly coming together, with Lily Collins up for the lead role, while Lena Headey, Kevin Zegers, Jamie Campbell Bowers, Kevin Durand, Robert Sheehan and many others also attached. Now THR reports that Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in talks for the movie.
The movie, based on Cassandra Clare’s young adult fantasy novel, is about Clary Fray (Collins), a young woman living in New York City who discovers she comes from a long line of demon hunters. Rhys Meyers is in talks to play the key role of Valentine Morgenstern, a “powerful but insane” Shadowhunter who’s known to have extremist views.
Shooting will start later this month, with Karate Kid’s Harald Zwart directing.
