‘The Mortal Instruments’ TV series update

I hope at the very least they keep Magnus and Simon. Also that they cast Raphie (: Changing the whole cast is a bit weird though, aren’t they starting where they ended, so with City of Ashes?

Thanks to our friend Nadine at TMI Germany we have Martin Moszkowicz’ interview with the German newspaper “Süddeutsche Zeitung” where he talks about The Mortal Instruments being turned into a TV series.

What we already knew from The Hollywood Reporter:

  • Ed Decter is the showrunner
  • the series is currently under development and will begin production next year
  • no broadcast partners are yet attached

What’s new:

  • Constantin Film aims to spend 2.5 to 5 million Euros per episode ($3,000,000 to 6,300,000), which would probably also apply to The Mortal Instruments
  • Ed Decter is the main author for the first (!) season
  • Martin thinks that Amazon could be interested in the TV series. The episodes and books could be on the same page so that you could buy them with one simple click

This morning (German time) Martin also tweeted:

    I have mixed feelings about the whole thing, and the cast change. Apparently they’re going to disregard the movie and start from the very beginning, I don’t know how I feel about that either because how different can they make those scenes from the ones in the movie. I guess we’ll see, I hope it works out. I hope they keep Godfrey and Simon (can’t remember his real name right now ) and that they cast a good Raphael too (love him).

    I actually think it’s good if they start over. Basically, I found the movie, well, not good, so if they start it over they’ll be able to give the show a good start it needs. Plus, the director will be able to follow the books closer.
