Fans of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series are probably aware by now that there’s a movie in the works. Though the first film isn’t set to hit theaters until August 23rd of next year, the first glimpses of the characters we love are being revealed.
Today, Entertainment Weekly released the first official sneak peek photo from Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Here’s Clary Fray, played by Lily Collins, showing off a shadowhunter rune:
The author had this to say about the image: “Clary has the ability to both create new symbols and make runes that are stronger than other people’s. In this scene, she is fending off an enemy with the first rune that she’s ever drawn on herself at the amazement of the other Shadowhunters. It was very reassuring to come on set and see everything covered in runes and replicated down to the last detail. The movie was definitely made by people who love the books and wanted to do right by them.”
The first official trailer is set to release later this week, be sure to check back with us! Want more? Cassandra Clare did an awesome exclusive interview with ew.com about casting and movie spoilers, so be sure to check it out here!
