★★☆☆☆Etching another notch on the bedpost of the already crowded will they/won't they? vein of romantic comedy, Love, Rosie (2014) boasts a fresh-faced cast whose star power will inevitably be bolstered by appearing in this heinious exercise in ignoble triviality. Directed by Christian Ditter and adapted from Cecelia Ahern's 2004 novel Where Rainbows End, Love, Rosie is ostensibly the iPhone generation's When Harry Met Sally (1989) - a saccharin-drenched drama that rarely merits the chemistry its central cast ably displays. The film sees Lily Collins plays the titular Rosie opposite Sam Claflin's Alex, two best friends who've grown up together side by side. »

Director: Christian Ditter
Running time: 102 minutes
Synopsis: Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin) have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn’t possibly be right for one another…or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
Adapted from the Cecelia Ahern novel ‘Where Rainbows End’, Love, Rosie is a decade-spanning romantic comedy about friendship, true love and bad timing. For those about to give up there, although it’s admittedly a concept with about as much originality as most boy-meets-girl scenarios, Love, Rosie has several key elements working in its’ favour allowing it to flourish.

Based on Celia Ahern's novel Where Rainbow's End, Love, Rosie inhabits the same sphere of inoffensive romantic comedy as the last adaption of her work, P.S., I Love You (what is with them being named after sign-off's in letters?), thankfully free of bad Irish accents, but director Christian Ditter does inject a slightly rougher edge into proceedings, while still ticking off a checklist of romantic cliches. Lily Collins and Sam Claflin play Rosie and Alex, who we find out from the very first frame have being friends since childhood. Over the course of twelve years, from the ages of 18 to 30, we follow the pair through their will they/won't they romance, one that takes in an unplanned pregnancy, failed relationships and one night stands, and different continents While the first act makes you believe this is a irreverent take on the usual romantic comedy formula (throwing in some slightly »

Will they? Won't they? Can men and women ever just be friends? Are they going to make it to the airport on time? Just about every romantic comedy cliché gets ticked off in Love, Rosie, a new British film based on Cecelia Ahern's novel Where Rainbows End. The destination may never be in doubt, but thanks to likeable performances from stars Lily Collins and Sam Claflin this predictable film has a heart and soul that keeps it watchable for the duration.
The two up-and-coming leads play Alex and Rosie, school pals whose tight bond is more brother/sister than boyfriend/girlfriend. A kiss between them on Rosie's birthday is forgotten thanks to the effects of alcohol, and the duo carry on as normal, making plans to »

Collins’ fabulous duds boasted a black bustier with a geometric neckline and an open back. The Elie Saab creation also had a Watteau cape train that flowed behind the Mortal [...] »
Lily Collins learns from her failed relationships, but admits ''heartbreak sucks.'' The 25-year-old actress, who previously dated Zac Efron and Jamie Campbell Bower, said: ''You can get different things out of different relationships with different people. You can take every experience and try to learn something about yourself - maybe something that was making you happy or unhappy, qualities you did or didn't like about that person - and take that with you, so at least you know the boundaries of what works for you.'' But the 'Love, Rosie' star insists she doesn't have type when it comes to dating. She told online magazine The Edit: ''When you're just being yourself, that's when you attract someone with the qualities that are most suitable for you. The second you write someone off because they're 'not your type,' you shut yourself off from a person and an experience that might be perfect for you. »

A full quarter-century has passed since Nora Ephron deftly articulated the pitfalls of platonic friendship between men and women in “When Harry Met Sally…”. Yet if “Love, Rosie” is to be believed, a whole new generation of adults has arrived at much the same conclusion Ephron did: In the movies, at least, the sex part always gets in the way. A thoroughly likeable English-language debut for German comedy helmer Christian Ditter, this marzipan-sweet adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 bestseller “Where Rainbows End” is elevated by vibrant visuals and the winsome chemistry of Lily Collins and Sam Claflin. Cast as childhood BFFs who dance around their true feelings for each other through multiple decades, countries and partners, this inordinately pretty star pairing lends youthful appeal to a rom-com that could also woo the adult chick-lit crowd.
With its twelve-year narrative timeframe, comfy middle-class Britishisms and sparky pairing of striving, pure-hearted girl and raffish, »

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones failed (pretty spectacularly) at the box office last year, but the Ya novel is getting a second shot at an adaptation. This time, it's coming to the small screen as "a high-end drama series." In case you haven't read Cassandra Clare's books or seen the movie, the story follows a young girl (played by Lily Collins in the film) who discovers a dangerous and magical city under New York called Downworld. The fantasy books have been bestsellers, so hopefully the show will connect with the built-in fan base more than the movie did. »
German production company Constantin Film revealed at the Mipcom TV market in Cannes this weekend that they are developing TV show spin-offs for their film franchises Resident Evil and The Mortal Instruments. Here's what Constantin's Martin Moszkowicz had to say in a statement.
"We are moving rapidly. Constantin has a lot of feature film brands and we are moving them into television. For instance, we own the rights to the book series The Mortal Instruments, and we just hired a showrunner in Los Angeles, and our offices in Los Angeles and Canada are starting production next year on at least two or three international shows."
Ed Decter, who most recently produced TV shows such as Unforgettable and The Client List, is reportedly the showrunner attached to The Mortal Instruments, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with production slated to begin sometime next year.
The Mortal Instruments was initially slated to be a feature film franchise, »
Talk about immortality! (Sorry.) The Hollywood Reporter shares that The Mortal Instruments, Cassandra Clare’s bestselling and beloved Ya book franchise (that first started as Harry Potter fan fiction, lest we forget), is bound for the small screen. And, no, you’re not misremembering things here – the series has already made one attempt at adaptation, with last year’s underperforming feature film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. The Lily Collins-starring feature was originally imagined as a franchise starter, but the film made less than $32m at the American box office (interestingly, the feature did make a grand total of $90.5m with worldwide receipts, but such a take still puts it in the bottom half of Ya adaptations). Although there has been some chatter about lensing a second feature, it now appears that these Instruments are pointing in a different direction. Constantin Film, the rights-holding production company, will now revisit the series as a “high-end drama »

"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" was a box office disappointment last year, delaying production of its sequel, "City of Ashes." But fans of the Cassandra Clare Ya books will still have a chance to see an adaptation of the series, which is set to move to the small screen as a TV show.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that "The Mortal Instruments" is being developed by production company Constantin Film as "a high-end drama series," which will begin production next year. No network is attached to the project yet.
When it bowed in 2013, "The Mortal Instruments," which starred Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, banked only $31 million at the domestic box office, a disappointing total that put its big screen follow-up on an indefinite hold. But now, Martin Moszkowicz, head of film and TV projects at Constantin, tells THR that a television adaptation will be more beneficial to Clare's stories. »

After fizzling at the box-office as a potential film franchise, Cassandra Clare's young adult fantasy novel series "The Mortal Instruments" is being re-developed as a TV series.
Ed Decter ("Helix," "Unforgettable," "The Client List") is developing the small screen version for Constantin Film who controls the rights and produced the previous film which starred Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower.
No broadcast partners are yet onboard the new version which is being billed as a high-end drama series that will be able to more faithfully translate Clare's work to the screen. Production aims to get underway next year.
