Mortal Instruments transitions to TV series

by on Apr.02, 2015, under Television

Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments book series may get a second chance at a visual medium, but this time it will be a little smaller screen-wise.

Despite poor results from the 2013 film The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, the second film based on City Of Ashes was still planned to be produced according to producer Constantin Film, but later the plans were put on hold to “reposition” the film. But it appears that things have changed drastically, with ABC Family acquiring the rights to Shadowhunters, a TV series based on the books. The plans were announced last Fall, but now with a U.S. outlet production will go ahead this Fall. Ed Decter will be showrunner. Cast has not yet been set.
