BY THE ANGEL: Vulture reports that British hottie and fan favorite Alex Pettyfer has been offered the role of the delectable Jace Wayland in the long-awaited City of Bones movie.
Sorry to sound like a fangirl, but I’m happily freaking out right now because I can honestly say no one else, and I mean no one, could play Jace like Pettyfer.
*Screaming with glee*
Pettyfer hasn’t formally accepted the role – so we shouldn’t get too excited just yet. Vulture’s article states that
“Screen Gems chief Clint Culpepper feels so strongly about casting Pettyfer in the supernatural love story that he only wants to green-light the film if he can land the actor. Negotiations are expected to begin late this week, and a formal announcement could come as early as next.”
If Pettyfer’s schedule doesn’t conflict and he accepts, filming could start as soon as MARCH. EEEEK! We’ve got our Clary in Lily Collins – let’s hope and pray to the angel that 99.9 percent of fans will get their preferred Jace.
NEW STUFF – CASSIE CLARE’S TAKE ON THIS NEWS:
“I wanted to wait till I could have an official chat with the studio folks before I said anything, so my small contribution is: I know Alex has met with the director, Scott Stewart, several times; I know he read the TMI books over the holidays and really liked them and liked Jace, and negotiations are ongoing. At this point it’s all about the deal, which really doesn’t have anything to do with me, so I stand back and wait for news like the rest of you.”
