Jonathan Rhys Meyers (also starring in NBC’s “Dracula”) is in negotiations to join the cast of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, an adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s YA fantasy novel from Constantin Film and Unique Pictures, says THR.
Lily Collins leads the cast as a young woman who discovers she is the descendant of a secret cadre of half-angel warriors called Shadowhunters locked in an ancient battle to protect the world from demons. Jessica Postigo and I. Marlene King wrote the script.
Rhys Meyers will play Valentine Morgenstern, described as a powerful but insane Shadowhunter looking to make the world pure at any cost.
“Game of Thrones” actress Lena Headey and “Mad Men”’s Jared Harris and Kevin Zegers are among the cast.
Harald Zwart is directing the movie, which is due to begin production later this month in Toronto.
