The Infernal Devices Movie?

Before City of Bones had even finished filming, there was already buzz around the TMI / ID fan site world about the possibility of there being an Infernal Devices movie. I mean, Will and Jem on the big screen, YES please! All joking aside, YES please make this into a movie! I LOVE this series and want nothing more than to see this beautiful, dark and exciting Victorian London time, and my favorite Shadowhunters on the big screen. 

Good news for us fans, Constantin Films, who owns the movie rights for The Mortal Instruments movies also owns the rights to The Infernal Devices! Last weekend Martin Moszkowicz, executive producer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie asked fans on twitter:

This of course put all of us in a fandom overload over the possibility of this movie coming to life! That also sent fans Cassie's way to ask her questions about the possibility of ID being made into a movie. Here's a few of the fan questions that were asked of her on Twitter and what she replied back with. 

What do you guys think? Want to see The Infernal Devices on the big screen?

Cassie's Latest Posts / TMI Related News

Recently I've been trying to do a weekly re-cap of Cassie's recents posts, and with being sick the past two weeks I've fallen slightly behind on doing so. Here's a brief re-cap of a few of Cassie's posts. Be sure to follow Cassie's Tumblr to read ALL of her posts. Trust me, you want to go read them. ;)


Adrihyn asked Cassie, "Will Clockwork Princess and City of Heavenly Fire have any extras/excerpts?"

I don’t know about Heavenly Fire yet, but as for Clockwork Princess, if you’re asking if there will be different editions with special content like letters — no. In every first edition of the North American version of Clockwork Princess, there will be a family tree that shows the connections between the generations in The Infernal Devices and the generation in The Mortal Instruments.

It’s pretty cool.

** First edition: A publisher prints a certain number of books. It is called a “print run.” When all those books are sold, they print a new run of books. Each print run is numbered. The first edition is every book from the first print run. How do you get a first edition? Your best bet is to pre-order the book. You can do that online anywhere that you can order books, or go into any bookstore and pre-order.

*I don’t know about its availability overseas yet.

TMI fans are some of the most talented fans I know of, and I love how Cassie often times shares her favorite artwork. I AM IN LOVE with this one of Will! Cassie featured it here.

Fanart of Julian Blackthorn and Emma Carstairs was featured this past week on Cassie's tumblr with her saying, "Emma and Jules! Ahh, the Dark Artifices. I am having so much fun plotting it, but at the same time it makes me sad because I know it's coming out will mean TMI is over. *feelz*"

Simon and Isabelle from The Mortal Instruments by @CassieClare

I love this one of Will and Jem! 

I love this! Cassie's been posting some sweet TMI movie graphics that I some how keep missing.

 Cassie featured another awesome TMI movie poster. I love how this poster shows Clary in both worlds.

Questions and answers

1) “is the release date for the clockwork princess march 19 2013? will there be another book after the city of heavenly fire? — in-this-moment-we-are-infinte”

Yep, that’s the release date of Clockwork Princess, and yes City of Heavenly Fire is the last book of the Mortal Instruments. After that comes The Dark Artifices, a new Shadowhunter series.

I also have not been checking my mail here on tumblr and just did and realized I had like 800 messages in the form of fanmails, which hadn’t occurred to me would happen if I turned off asks, so I am extremely grateful for all the messages, but I can’t answer them all, so I’m going to try to answer the ones that are of general interest publicly. Like this one!

2) "I love how you write amazing book and still seem to be a fangirl at heart"- wepreferintellectualbadass

It is true. Not the amazing books part, but the huge geek part. I say huge geek in the best possible way. Geeks make the world go around. Who loves things more than we do?

3) How often has Magnus been to South Carolina?

Often enough that he pays taxes there.

4) Which are you more nervous about City of Heavenly Fire or Clockwork Princess? - oneofthenightchildren

— In terms of “when they come out, how will people react?” I guess Clockwork Princess, because the ending gave my critique group a lot of “AAAAA!” (although everyone agreed it was the only way it could end, but I still rewrote it about 1,000 times) whereas CoHF isn’t finished. So without myself knowing exactly how the ending plays out, even if I do know what happens, I can’t guess how people might react. Mostly people react to the execution of something rather than the idea.

The Mortal Instruments City of Bones MOVIE TIE-IN will be out on July 9th, 2013 (at least according to Amazon)! There's not been an official announcement yet on whether or not this is true, but I really hope it is! Despite owning a "few" copies of City of Bones, I would totally pick up the movie tie in. 

Speaking of City of Bones, the City of Bones graphic novel by Th3rd World have been pushed back from it's May 2013 released to August 6th, 2013. Another book I can't wait to pick up. 

The Unauthorized Guide to The Mortal Instruments hits shelves in June 4th, 2013. Both Amazon and Barnes & Noble are already taking pre-orders from The Mortal Instruments Companion: City of Bones, Shadowhunters, and the Sight: The Unauthorized Guide by Lois H. Gresh. This book is NOT affiliated with Cassandra Clare, Simon & Schuster or the film. Unauthorized companions are books that have no ties to anyone affiliated with the original series. Lois Gresh has written unauthorized companions for both Twilight and The Hunger Games. 

Is this a book you guys would pick up? I'm normally not a fan of unauthorized books, but this is one I might have to flip through and check out at the book store.

Real life couple, Jamie and Lily, also known as Jace and Clary, were spotted at this past week's 2012 British Fashion Awards hosted in London on Monday. What a great looking couple.

Our own Luke Garroway, known in real life as Adrian Truner was spotted at The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey's movie premiere in New Zealand on Wednesday. Good thing he was there, as Adrian is in this movie! More reason to go watch it and support our TMI movie cast members. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters on 12/14/12.

Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader

Sophie first mentioned the Shadowhunters & Downworlders free sneak peak here, and Cassie recently posted about it here. Here's what she said:

So Smart Pop Books has put up the introduction to Shadowhunters and Downworlders, which is their collection of essays on The Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices. And these essays are written by amazing writers, who tackle everything, and I do mean everything:

“Inside you’ll read:

Much naughtiness within, it seems. The essays:

“Unhomely Places”  by Kate Milford

“The Art of War”  by Sarah Cross

“Sharper Than a Seraph Blade” by Diana Peterfreund

“When Laws Are Made to Be Broken”  by Robin Wasserman

“Simon Lewis: Jewish, Vampire, Hero”  by Michelle Hodkin

“Why the Best Friend Never Gets the Girl”   by Kami Garcia  

“Brotherly Love”  by Kendare Blake

“Asking for a Friend”  by Gwenda Bond

“(Not) For Illustration Purposes Only”  by Rachel Caine

“The Importance of Being Malec”  by Sara Ryan

“Villains, Valentine, and Virtue”  by Scott Tracey

“Immortality and Its Discontents”  by Kelly Link and Holly Black

“What Does That Deviant Wench Think She’s Doing? Or, Shadowhunters Gone Wild”  by Sarah Rees Brennan

You can also read my introduction about how I came up with the world and characters of the Shadowhunters, which may just be the thing I point to now and forever whenever people ask me where I got the idea for the books. :)

“I set about to people my world: I knew I wanted the story to center on a tough, strong girl with a reckless streak and a big heart. So Clary was born. I wanted to give her a best friend who would always be there for her, since the romance of a great friendship has always fascinated me. Along came Simon. And I’ve always loved the fair-haired rogue with a biting sense of humor who used that humor as a defense mechanism—and then there was Jace. Brave Isabelle, thoughtful Alec, zealous and misguided Valentine, supportive Luke, wise and wild Magnus, all came along gradually, spinning relationships between themselves as they grew.”
