Cassandra Clare Discusses The Mortal Instruments Series With Constantin Films & The Network

TMI TV series discussions are under way in LA. Oh to be a fly on the wall during this meeting. Martin Moszkowicz (from Constantin Films) tweeted this picture earlier today. Cassandra Clare posted it on her Tumblr. She said,"Me visiting the Shadowhunters writing room in Los Angeles. You can see the back of the show runner Ed Dexter’s head.

I'm thrilled to see Cassie here with the film studio and network discussing the Shadowhunters Series. Seeing Cassandra Clare talking about the series, gives me a lot of hope that things will be improve given the rumors that have been circulating. Last night Cassandra took to Twitter to discuss rumors and answer questions about the series, which I shared here. Hopefully we'll hear about the cast soon.

TMI TV Series News: Cassandra Clare Confirms Many of the Rumors UNTRUE!

Cassandra Clare is in LA meeting with the writers for the Shadowhunters TV show and the network! I couldn't be happier about this news. I hope that means that now she'll have some sort of involvement with the series. Cassandra took to Twitter last night and confirmed that many of the TMI TV series floating around were untrue, including the one about Simon's girlfriend, Natalie. Here's what she said:

I can say that the scripts etc that have been floating around are not real, there's no Natalie either. :)

That is the best news ever that there is no Natalie! Cassandra Clare went on to answer fan questions about the TV series. She also confirmed news related to the TMI TV series, and addressed why there were so many rumors. Here's a series of tweets she shared last night.

I met with the writers for the Shadowhunters show, and the network.

I have more meetings tomorrow and right now I can't say too much, but everything went well.

Soon I'll be able to tell you when they start filming, and when they will start airing.

I can say that the scripts etc that have been floating around are not real, there's no Natalie either. :)

The show is not yet cast. They are having auditions now.

I watched a few. :)

: " are you pleased with the people auditioning?” I don't know who will be picked, but there's some great people!

: " any word on if they will start the show on book one or after the movie?” It starts from the beginning.

: " do you think it will be transmitted worldwide?” I'll try to find out what countries.

I haven't read a final script. (I mean, as much as final scripts even exist.)

Oh, and there will definite be Magnus and Alec romance. That was a promise. :)

: do you think it will take long until we know more about the script, cast, etc ?” Not long.

: " what about clary and simon's friendship?? Im so worried about that :(” It seems included.

: " any plans for TID to be included in the shadowhunters tv show? Or just TMI at this point?” I think that would be separate?

: ' anything to say about that Natalie girl?”
: " The age stuff, is it true? Are the characters going to be older? xx” Yes.

: " Can you tell us something you really would like to see in the series (and not be changed or cut out)?.” Jace's humor.

: "why dont authors have a say on what happens to the show/movie even if it's their story???” 

And just to say — please don't be mad at anyone who responded to/read the pilot script(s) floating around the internet.

Lots of things called "Shadowhunters Pilot Script" were out there, and downloadable. They still are.

There is no way for anyone to know what exactly is final, and I would also have assumed that the script being used for casting was the rea

thing, and indeed, it was probably just an early draft. So be nice to each other! You all want the same thing: a good show.

Now admire hot Jem cover model and be at peace.

Thank you Cassie for sharing this news and clearing the air. It's nice to know that the  Shadowhunter TV scripts etc that have been floating around are not real. It's no wonder why the rumors went crazy. This is why I don't post about everything little thing I hear. I don't feel bad for posting about the news I did share. Some of what I shared was confirmed, and the other few things I shared were quoted from reliable sources, or a source who had seen the script. I impinge it's hard knowing whether the script that people read was real or not. I'm happy knowing there isn't a real script yet. I'm looking forward to hearing more Shadowhunter TV series news from Cassie soon.
