After the failed movie adaptation of City of Bones, it turns out that its being turned into a TV show. It’s not a recent decision but most of the cast has been announced recently and here’s just some thoughts I’m having right now.
- Oh god, another one?
- Hey Clary will actually have the red hair I imagined!
- Are they gonna recap the whole first book or just start off where the movie finished?
- HARRY SHUM JR HELL YEAH!
- Hahah, Christian is blond.
- Well, this will either be horribly disastrous or amazingly wonderful.
- (It better be freaking awesome)
I feel like the show is much more well casted than the film, going off purely appearance. I mean, Dominic Sherwood aka the guy playing Jace looks much more suitable for the role. He has a more Jace feel to me than the other guy did. Same goes for Katherine McNamara aka the girl playing Clary. That glorious red hair!!!
I‘m kinda reluctant to get excited over Shadowhunters, mainly because I got such feels off the movie trailer and the movie was crap. I am excited about Dominic Sherwood though because he was Christian Ozera in the Vampire Academy movie and Christian is a pretty similar charcter to Jace in their mannerisms and such. Hopefully he does the character justice. Plus he was in Taylor Swift’s “Style” and it was amazing so bonus points.
Let’s talk about the other cast. Who I’m really excited to see is Harry Shum Jr playing Magnus because movie Magnus was kinda iffy. The rest of the cast includes Matthew Daddario (Alec) who’s Alexandra Daddario aka the girl who played Annabeth in the Percy Jackson movies brother, Emeraude Toubia (Isabelle) and Alberto Rosende (Simon). Let’s just say everyone in the cast is hot so this is gonna be one good looking show.
Plotwise, I think I’d really want the show to base their mythology right off the book unlike the movie. Really I just want something that wasn’t the movie.
So what are your thoughts on the new tv show. It doesn’t come out till 2016 but I’ll definitely be waiting for it. My excitement on it however… well I’ll make that decision after the first trailer comes out!
