We have been excited for weeks for the start of the Cannes Film Festival. We were even more excited to find out that the festival is where the first unveiling of ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes’ will occur. A statement released by Variety claims that Mister Smith Entertainment will be seeking international buyers at the Cannes preview.
This is what they had to say:
Mister Smith Entertainment is to introduce “The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes,” the sequel to the upcoming “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” to international buyers at Cannes next week.
“City of Bones,” which is the first pic in the fantasy franchise, is due for release worldwide this summer. Screen Gems will release it in the U.S. on Aug. 23.
Harald Zwart (“The Karate Kid”) returns to helm the sequel. Returning thesps are Lily Collins (“Mirror Mirror,” “The Blind Side”) and Jamie Campbell Bower (“Anonymous,” “Camelot”).
Lensing on the sequel, penned by Jessica Postigo Paquette, who also wrote the screenplay for “City of Bones,” begins in the fall.
Robert Kulzer is producing for Constantin Film, alongside Don Carmody. Their credits include the “Resident Evil” franchise. Exec producers are Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, who teamed on “The Lord of the Rings,” for Unique Features, and Martin Moszkowicz for Constantin.
We eagerly anticipate the release of ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ this August!
