Lily Collins Waiting to Hear News About the Sequel: CITY OF ASHES

Earlier this year, the Hollywood Reporter had heard from Constantin that the sequel to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones would start filming in 2014. With MTV's latest chat at Glamour magazine's Women of the Year Award with our Clary Fray, Lily Collins, she states that "There is a lot of conversation still going on. I don't know anything else; I kind of am with everyone else in the waiting game."
"I think I'm like all the fans going, 'So, what's happening?' But you know they will be the first ones to figure it out when we do. You never know, right?"
Check out the interview:
So, at the moment, it is still unclear as to if the sequel will happen; but, let's keep our fingers crossed!

Constantin to Restart Production for CITY OF ASHES and Filming in 2014

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmation from Constantin about The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes continuing with production and filming in 2014.
Constantin is pushing ahead with its adaptations of Cassandra Clare’s best-selling Mortal Instruments franchise and plans to restart production on the second film in the series, The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, next year.
The executive producer, Martin Moskowicz, says that City of Bones' slight miss at the box-office can be explained by "[the] marketing campaign that was too narrowly focused on teenage fans, to the detriment of Clare’s 20- and 30-something readers"
And it also looks like Constantin has a lot of faith in this fandom:
"The fan response, from the blogosphere and the thousands of mails we have received, has encouraged us to keep going,” Moszkowicz told The Hollywood Reporter. “It's been overwhelmingly positive, in contrast to some other YA titles.”
Hopefully we'll get to see more set pictures in Toronto next year!

Constantin Films Postponing THE MORTAL INSTRMENTS: CITY OF ASHES Filming

The principal photography for The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes was set to shoot in Toronto Monday, September, 23, however after a soft opening weekend, Constantin Films will "analyze the results to date and reposition the franchise in order to maximize the results for future installments.”

Martin Moskowicz adds
Constantin Film has a long tradition of adapting books to the big screen. Pushing back the start of production of CITY OF ASHES was a decision we did not take lightly. But after speaking with all of our partners on the creative and distribution side, it was clear that it will be beneficial to have more time to reposition the film in the current market place. THE
MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series has an incredibly loyal and ardent fan base and is a bestselling book series. While taking Cassandra Claire’s vision to the screen we want to make sure to draw on the full potential of the franchise.
Isn't Martin Moskowicz and the whole team the best? I guess we'll just have to wait a bit longer, but I'm sure a better movie will be worth the wait.
Hopefully we will get another Mortal Instruments movie, so keep on tweeting #WeNeedCityOfAshes

Pictures: Closeup Shots of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS' Supernatural Characters + Talk About The Make-up

Silent Brother Practical Make-up
Make-Up Artist Magazine features the supernatural characters make-up in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. They show how the practical make-up is rooted from the concept design.
The film’s physical creatures were built by make-up effects veteran Paul Jones (Silent Hill, Defiance), with designs contributed by concept artist Martin Mercer. Unlike other genre projects, where the monsters have a much more obvious presence, the challenge on this film was to create a range of supernatural characters that may not be as obvious at first. “There’s a great scene where Clary goes to Magnus Bane’s house [where there’s] a party,” explains Jones, “and I would say about 70 percent of the guests are human and the other 30 percent are human-ish, so they all have something slightly off about them.
“One guy has a golden face with African tribal scars on his face, but his face is a luminescent gold, while another girl has cat eyes that you don’t really notice at first until she opens her eyes wide at the camera, so in terms of our prosthetics, everything was scaled right down to be very subtle. We found people that were interesting already and basically enhanced their natural features, rather than taking somebody average or attractive and turning them into a monster.”
Jones worked directly with Mercer to create the creatures. “Martin is very fast,” Jones notes, “so I was able to run the shop but not have to sit down at my laptop and design for a day. Martin would come to me and I would act like an art director and say, ‘OK, that wrinkle is great—make it a bit longer and bring the cheekbones out more, darken down this part of the rune, make the teeth a little longer.’
Silent Brother Concept Design

“Four or five hours later the design would be done and get sent off to production designer François Séguin, and from a practical point of view, I wouldn’t have any problem building anything in the design. When you are given a design by somebody else, it can be tricky sometimes, because they don’t understand what we do or the limitations we have from a prosthetic point of view. Because I understood the characters in this world and where they lived, we were able to simply carry on with what we were doing.”

Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins' Interview in Mexico City for MORTAL INSTRUMENTS Premiere

While Jamie Campbell Bower, and Lily Collins were in Mexico City for The Mortal Instruments premiere, they did a couple interviews to promote the film. Here is one interview with Revista CinePREMIERE (they also have an interview with Godfrey Gao and Kevin Zegers where they talk about Malec)

Godfrey Gao and Kevin Zegers Agree That "There Will Definitely Be More Malec in the CITY OF ASHES Movie"

While Godfrey Gao, and Kevin Zegers were in Mexico City for The Mortal Instruments premiere, they answered a few fan questions from Revista CinePREMIERE. One of the questions concern some talk about Magnus, Alec and their relationship in the next movie -City of Ashes:

"Constantin is proceeding with plans to begin shooting CITY OF ASHES" Says Martin Moskowicz

Although City of Ashes has been scheduled to start this September, 23, a lot of fans were still afraid that there would be no City of Ashes movie due to the "soft" opening of just over $14 million for City of Bones. However, The Hollywood Reporter tells us that:
Despite the soft U.S. start, Moszkowicz said the reaction from the book's fan base has been "very positive." And he said that Constantin is proceeding with plans to begin shooting a sequel, Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, in Toronto this fall.
Also, keep in mind, there will be a international roll-out for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
Moszkowicz said it was still too early to make a prognosis forMortal Instrument's global box office revenue. But Constantin has proven before that it can successfully use international markets to recoup a shortfall in the U.S. Paul WS Anderson's The Three Musketeers (2011), a Constantin production, earned a disappointing $20 million in its U.S. release through Summit Entertainment, but went on to gross some $150 million worldwide.
Martin Moskowicz also states:
Martin Moszkowicz, head of film and TV at Constantin and an executive producer on Mortal Instruments, blamed the weak early U.S. figures on "a strongly competitive environment," which included a pair of similarly-skewing genre pics in Lionsgate's horror movie You're Next and Edgar Wright's sci-fi action-comedy The World's End. He also cited strong holdovers The Butler and We're the Millers. Sony's Screen Gems picked up the film for the U.S.
