The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, which was suppose to start filming in September but was then delayed, is now back on and expected to begin filming in Toronto in 2014.
According to Variety, the sequel to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, will go into production sometime next year, although a start date has yet to be decided.
Principal photography was delayed after a disappointing theatrical run for the first film in the franchise but the movie's production company, Constantin Film, is confident they can correct some of the mistakes made with City of Bones.
Constantin board member Martin Moszkowicz explained, ”We are analyzing exactly what went wrong, and that needs some time. We’ll go back to the drawing board, and we’ll work on the screenplay; we’ll work on the elements of the movie; and then we’ll budget it.”
He added that they “strongly believes” in the franchise, which is adapted from a series of best-selling books for young adults by Cassandra Clare.
