It's been one hell of a week for YA movie adaptations. There's been heaps of news and gossip for our fav Shadowhunters and Vamps!
The spectacular and shiny new TMI City of Bones movie trailer and the cast panel at WonderCon. The trailer showed Cassandra Clare's world coming alive and Jace looking bad ass! Speaking of Jace, there was Jamie Campbell Bower's now infamous "yeah, I love my sister" comment!
Over in the Academy:
Richelle Mead and the people over at The Official Vampire Academy Movie FB page have been posting photos of Zoey and Danila in Dhampir training. It looks and sounds brutal! The producers also released the following exciting filming info: It’s been awhile since our last update, so we want to take this opportunity to get everyone caught up on our progress and all the production news for the movie.
- Casting. This is the most asked about issue by the fans. So here’s the deal! Casting for the remaining characters for the first film is officially underway once again.
- Locations. The final locations for shooting are now being decided by our director Mark Waters. The big news is we will be shooting the movie in Europe, mostly in and around the UK, with additional photography planned in Montana.
- Green light. The project was officially declared to proceed as of April 1. Our targeted (estimated) date to begin production is the last week in May.
- The Movie Crew has begun work with Mark in the UK, who is already in London. We are assembling an amazing line up of seasoned behind-the-scenes production talent for all the important work to be done.
- The Weinstein Company is busy at work developing their plans to launch both the Official Movie Web Page and social media campaign and marketing for the film. We look forward to working closely with them in the near future, as they begin to roll out their exciting new plans.
As always, we will strive to update everyone on progress as events allow, and look forward with great appreciation for your continuing support, encouragement and inspiration, as we endeavour to bring this incredible series to the Big Screen!
I don't know about you, but I cannot wait to see these movies and I love all the behind the scenes insights we get these days from producers, authors and actors!
