UPDATE: ‘Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes’ will film in Toronto in 2014


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.


  1. What do you mean, what went wrong???

    City of Bones was awesome!
    a lot of fans loved it!
    And I really cannot wait until city of ashes.!

  2. Movie city of bones was great loved jamie and lily together hope to see them together more in other sequels of mortal instruments I have watched it over and over

  3. I hope they make city of ashes its a excellently written story and it would be a shame if the franchise is giving a chance …. it need a new screen writer , producer …. director …. the actors can stay …. I wonder when they wrote the story if they actually read the books …. I hated how they portrayed Valentine .., the screen play they wrote had the actors looking like fools the only reason I am not angry with the actors is that I have seen some in other movies and they are brilliant …..for instance Valentine !… he isn’t some leather bound savage …. he’s a warrior yes….but he is sophisticated has class….who dresses in suites …. and where in the book did he reach in the institute …Oh and were in the book did Clary wake up to finding her room covered in runes ???? what were u guys trying? wear was Raphael were was the story the I read and feel in love with ?…I haven’t been this in love with a book since Harry Potter.. The book is excellent and does not need to be adjusted to the production teams vision follow the authors vision that’s the one we want…. and fyi if you get mortal instruments right .. you can branch of to the infernal device and the next set she is writing !!!!!
