Even I have to admit that one of the weakest book to screen adaptations as of late was The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. I wanted to love it, I really did. Hell, I even supported the movie in spite of it's suckage just to do my part to get a sequel. That's right, I paid to see it in theaters 3 times and purchased the Blu Ray/DVD combo pack. So, what do I have to show for my years of faithful reading, ticket buying, and shameless promotion of a less than stellar movie? Do I finally get to announce City of Ashes is coming to our screen with Sigourney Weaver as the much maligned Inquisitor? Of course not. Were getting a TV series. Now I'm grateful to at least be getting that, mind you. It just feels a little cheep at the moment. Lets just hope they do this one justice. That they actually follow the source material and give some creative control to Cassandra Clare. Which is a possibility, since television rights are sold separately from movie rights. She could have negotiated for a totally different set of parameters. So, lets cross our fingers for a great cast and a stellar script. A return to the world that we know and love. Till next time Hunters!
