Books into Movies: The Mortal Instruments (Casts Two Villains)

Production for The Mortal Instruments is really picking up! Variety reported that more actors have been cast in the film. Kevin Durand and Robert Maillet will star as two of Valentine's Shadowhunters,  Pangborn and Blackwell. 

I think they are great choices! Both look pretty villainous. I'm really excited that production seems to be moving quickly. I've been skeptical so far of the casting choices (mainly Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace). But after I saw a new photo of Jamie Campbell Bower with super blond hair, I'm hoping he's going to transform into the beloved character.  

What do you think of the casting choices so far? Have you read the books? Will you see the movie? Thoughts below!


  1. I'm so glad you are keeping me up to date on this! I love knowing the movie news, but I hate tracking it down! I am soooo excited for this movie to happen.

  2. AHHHH! You don't know how excited I am for this!

    I'm actually very interested to see how it'll turn out, as there will be six Mortal Instrument books, and I forsee that the actors will get VERY old before they can do all six movies, so I wonder if they'll just make the first trilogy.

    Also, I really want to see who they cast for Simon.
