Sony Pictures begins casting call for the male lead in Screen Gems’ film adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s series, Mortal Instruments.

When asked to describe the Jace Wayland’s character, the book’s author, Cassandra Clare wrote: fighting, hunting, and killing demons are the things Jace is good at.
Though the jagged scars and black runic marks on his body are a badge of honor as far as he’s concerned, he keeps a lot to himself – like the fact that his parents were murdered by Valentine’s servants in front of him when he was ten years old.[ Also Read: Robojit Calling Hollywood ]
There are a lot of things Jace doesn’t talk about — until he meets Clary, a mundane girl who might see him better than he can see himself. The connection that binds them will force Jace to confront the black secrets of a past he never wanted to remember.[ Also Read: Digital Version of Ghost and the Magic Eye ]
The film version of Cassandra Clare’s book series is currently in active development with Screen Gems and the theatrical release is anticipated in the coming year.
