My Thoughts On: The Mortal Instruments TV Show!-

Disclaimer: This “My Thoughts On” does contain slight spoilers.

So if you didn’t know already The Mortal Instruments is being turned into a TV Show! SO EXCITING! We as a fandom are so lucky because we already had a flopped movie which was pretty bad. The movie added things in and a lot of the plot was manipulated badly. For example, Simon already showed signs of being a vampire and he wasn’t turned into a rat.

I am really excited but I do not want to get my hopes up because I don’t want to turn into a TV Show like Pretty Little Liars where they change the plot completely in order for the show to continue and drag on. I also don’t want the production company to only release the pilot like Delirium which ended badly.So, on the other hand, I am extremely nervous.

The information we have so far:
Constantin Film controls the rights to The Mortal Instruments
Ed Decter will be the show-runner
Each show will run for an hour long
Casting will be released by the end of the year
Production will begin early 2015
It will start from City of Bones

I would prefer if they recasted and started all over again. Besides, I don’t think the actors and actresses would want to re-do the movie. I also do not like Jamie-Cambell Bower as Jace he looks to old and he isn’t hot enough. I have no particular actor in my mind but whoever the pick better be an exact copy of Jace. I quite like Lily Collins as Clary. I thought she really suited the role she was young, red haired and had a similar personality to book Clary. I do not really know who else would be a good Clary. I also really like Robert Sheehan as Simon. Many think Logan Lerman should be Simon but I totally disagree.

Now onto the TV Channels! I have three channels which I would like The Mortal Instruments to be broadcasted on! First, I would really like The Mortal Instruments to be aired on NBC, for many reasons. One, its free to the public so no one needs to buy a cable box in order to watch it. Secondly, quite a few famous TV Shows are broadcasted on NBC. So, I think it is a perfect fit, the only problem I have is that not that many teens are on that channel except when America’s Got Talent is on. Another channel similar to NBC would be ABC Family- home to Pretty Little Liars and The Fosters- it would also be perfect for The Mortal Instruments. I also think HBO would be pretty good. Game of Thrones kicked off from this channel and I think it would be pretty good. However, it is not free to the public. If TNT, PBC or something similar gets the TV Show I would be pretty mad because who watches those channels? I wouldn’t want it to be a Netflix film either because like HBO not everyone has it and how many Netflix TV Shows are famous and popular (other than Orange is The New Black)?

A lot of money would have to go into this film because of all the special effects and the editing process but if they do it right it could boom. I am so excited and I can’t wait! Hopefully it doesn’t flop like the movie.

Share your thoughts in the comments- Who do you fancast and which channel do you want the TV Show to be broadcasted from?

Book News- 18/10/2014

Book News for all you guys!! It’s been a pretty eventful week! Stay tuned for reviews on my recently read books!

So earlier this week, MTV released chapter two of The Retribution of Mara Dyer. You can read it here: http://www.mtv.com/news/1959489/exclusive-retribution-of-mara-dyer-chapter/ I love this series and really can’t wait for the next book. This chapter is definitely spine-chilling.

On October the 12th, it was Josh Hutcherson’s birthday!! Talking about the Hunger Games Cast. A snippet of the upcoming movie, Mockingjay Part 1, was released. It was named “Return to District 12”. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6srDbQqlss I love Yellow Flicker Beat and I really enjoyed the way they used the song in this video. There is also going to be an app called “Panem Rising” coming out next month. We don’t have much information about it but it is going to be a game.

My True Love Gave To Me came out on October the 14th. I still need to go buy it- but I am so excited!

If you didn’t know The Mortal Instruments will be made into a TV Show because that way according to the new director, Martin Moszkowicz, they can explore the world in more depth. I have mixed feelings about this, I don’t want it turn out like the Mortal Instruments Movie. Many are wondering about the cast- will they re-cast or keep the old actors and actresses? I want them to have a new cast because that way they can start afresh and I didn’t really like Jamie C. Bower as Jace.

The Mortal Instruments Novella, The Shadow Hunter Academy will be released in EBook Format similar to the Bane Chronicles- a short story every month.

The Last Hours- New Snippet

As some of you may know Cassandra Clare (Author of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices) is writing three new series. They are The Dark Artifices, The Last Hours and The Wicked powers. The first book of the Dark Artifices is coming out next year. We don’t have much information about the release date for The Last Hours or The Wicked Powers. However, Cassandra Clare released a snippet of the Last Hours.

If you haven’t read any of Cassandra Clare’s books, this snippet contains spoilers for The Infernal Devices. You should definitely read it. The Mortal Instruments was one of the first YA fiction series I’ve read. The Infernal Devices in my opinion is better but they are both really good books!

Here is the snippet:
James could see his mother moving like an anxious pale star among the guests in her lilac dress, greeting each of them warmly, welcoming them to her home. She had not glamoured herself to look her husband’s age for the evening, and she appeared enormously young, though her hair was done up like a gracious older woman’s, not a girl’s. When Will materialized out of the crowd and came to put his arm around Tessa, smiling down at her, the gray at his temples flashed like silver. James looked away; he loved his parents for being extraordinary, but sometimes he also hated them for the same thing.

I honestly cannot wait for this series. I love Wessa (Will and Tessa). I ship them so hard. I am not a big fan of Jessa (Jem and Tessa) and didn’t really read Under The Bridge that much. I can’t wait to see the older Will and Tessa and ,of course, their children. I think I am looking forward to The Last Hours more than The Dark Artifices.
QOTD: Which book are you looking more forward to The Last Hours or The Dark Artifices?
