ABC Family Orders 'The Mortal Instruments' Series 'Shadowhunters'

15 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After flopping at the box office, "The Mortal Instruments" is getting new life as a TV series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC Family has ordered "Shadowhunters," based on the novels by Cassandra Clare, straight to series, with the adaptation eyed for 13-episode first season. THR reported back in October that production company Constantin Film wanted to turn the franchise into a "high-end drama" series in order to "go deeper and explore this world in greater detail and depth" than a film franchise could.

The move is also financial, since the 2013 big screen adaptation, "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," starring Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, only accrued $31 million at the domestic box office, cancelling plans for a movie sequel, "City of Ashes."

As in the film, "Shadowhunters" will center around Clary Fray, who discovers on her 18th birthday that she comes from a long line of human-angel hybrids »

‘The Mortal Instruments’ To Spread Its Wings On ABC Family

17 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Having failed to set the big screen ablaze a couple of years ago with City Of Bones, it’s hoped TV will prove a more fertile territory for an adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments book series.

Shadowhunters is to be produced by ABC Family. It focuses on Clary Fray, a teenage girl who’s about to find out she’s part-angel and has a secret family history of tracking down ancient monsters. Also featuring a range of classic creatures such as werewolves and the ubiquitous vampires, Clare’s saga has been a smash on the bookshelves, selling over 35 million copies around the world.

The author is naturally enthusiastic about having the brand extended to the lucrative live action market, releasing the following statement:

I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the ‘Shadowhunters’ to life. As a huge fan of longform television drama, I »

Cassandra Clare’s ‘Shadowhunters’ Series comes to ABC Family

30 March 2015 6:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cassandra Clare’s immensely popular young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments is being brought to TV as Shadowhunters, a thirteen episode drama by ABC Family, THR is reporting. The story follows protagonist Clarissa “Clary” Fray, who discovers she descends from a lineage of “Shadowhunters,” human-angel amalgams who hunt demons. Clary’s mother is kidnapped and Clary, a Shadowhunter named Jace, and her best friend Simon embark on a rescue/journey of self-discovery.

ABC’s decision to take Shadowhunters comes after the 2013 misfire screen adaptation of the series in City of Bones, produced by Screen Gems. City of Bones starred Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, and there’s no word as to the casting of the new TV series.

Despite the paltry take by City of Bones ($31 million domestically), ABC Family president Tom Ascheim is confident, saying “Shadowhunters is a big, epic saga that will resonate with viewers »

The Mortal Instruments TV Series Is Coming to ABC Family

30 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

While 2013's The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones wasn't a breakout hit at the box office, ABC Family is giving the franchise a second shot. The network has ordered a full season of Shadowhunters, a new show based on Cassandra Clare's Ya books. "Shadowhunters is a big, epic saga that will resonate with viewers who come to ABC Family for the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight franchises," ABC Family president Tom Ascheim said. "A New York Times bestseller for 122 consecutive weeks, with over 35 million copies in print worldwide, Shadowhunters is the perfect story to share with our audience." There's no premiere date yet, but we do know the first season will consist of 13 episodes. Production will begin in May, though no cast members have been announced yet. Lily Collins, Lena Headey, and Jared Harris starred in the movie, though it's highly doubtful they will be back for the series. »

The Mortal Instruments Gets a TV Show Called Shadowhunters

30 March 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones came out in 2013, I remember watching it in slight befuddlement. It was competently directed by Harald Zwart with a good performance from Lily Collins, but it just wasn't my thing at all. And, if I remember correctly, it ended with a weird sort of agreement between the two leads that they might be brother and sister, but they also might not be... and they just kind of decided to go with the latter assumption instead of really finding out lest they ruin their romance (if I'm wrong, feel free to tell me in the comments). If I'm right on that last point, it makes the franchise's move to ABC Family a tad ironic. But after City of Bones underperformed at the box office and a sequel in pre-production was scuttled, here we go. The Mortal Instruments will now take on a new life as Shadowhunters at the network, »

9 franchise-starting young adult films that struggled

25 March 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

For every Harry Potter or Hunger Games series, there are those franchises that didn't quite set the world on fire...

Since Insurgent came out, I’ve been thinking about those less fortunate: the franchise wannabes. While Divergent may have succeeded financially, (a film that rode on the coat-tails of the even more lucrative The Hunger Games franchise) there are others who didn’t quite make it into the movie world’s big leagues. These are the franchise-starters that flopped, the films produced with the optimistic hope that they will bring in the readies and kick-start Hollywood’s latest franchise. Worse luck for them, really.

For the sake of simplicity, this list will zero in on Ya franchise-starters, films adapted from a young adult novel or with that audience in mind. There are plenty of more mature films that struggled such as Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time, The A-Team »

Last week, rumors flew that one of Hollywood's hottest Chrises, Chris Evans, is dating Lily Collins, and now there's proof of their reported romance with pictures of Chris and Lily's sweet date night in La on Saturday. The images show 33-year-old Chris heading into an Italian restaurant with Lily, who was wearing a Heartloom sweater. The two were later seen laughing and smiling outside after they wrapped up their meal. It may have been a belated birthday celebration for Lily, who turned 26 on March 18. Interestingly enough, Chris's former flame Minka Kelly was at the same spot dining with a friend. Chris and Minka have been linked for years and, though their on-and-off relationship reportedly ended in 2013, they were last photographed getting lunch at a taco spot in La in October 2014. »
