CITY OF ASHES: Share your thoughts on favorite scenes from the book

After receiving news last night that the production of The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes is being delayed, I kept thinking about ways to help get the word out that Shadowhunters want to see this film made.

First and foremost, spread the word by tweeting #WeNeedCityofAshes.

My next thought is to start a discussion about what scenes we want to see in the follow up film and ways to take what we've seen in City of Bones and incorporate it into the next film to clear up any confusion in the canon of the story line.

We want YOU to get involved in this discussion. We want you to send us comments in the comment section below. You can also send us Facebook comments on The Mortal Institute Facebook page. Also, feel free to send me an email at I will try my best to respond to everyone's emails and to also compile ideas for the film to send to Constantin.

SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS, SHADOWHUNTERS! With your help, we can make sure that the studio hears fan comments. We want City of Ashes to be made and be a HUGE SUCCESS.

UPDATE: Martin Moszkowicz talks more about postponement of The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes

Executive producer Martin Moszkowicz has taken to his Twitter to further calm our concerns regarding Constantin's announcement that they have postponed shooting of The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes.

He is telling us how to help!

So tweet your hearts out Shadowhunters and be heard!

Constantin announces DELAY of The Mortal Instruments:City of Ashes

Martin Moszkowicz confirmed on his Twitter that Constantin has decided to postpone the start of principal photography of The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes.

Take a deep breath Shadowhunters, a delay does not mean the movie is cancelled.

From Martin's statement, which you can read here

The push of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF ASHES allows Constantin Film to analyze the results to date and reposition the franchise in order to maximize the results for future installments.

Said Martin Moszkowicz of Constantin Film and an executive producer on the franchise: "Constantin Film has a long tradition of adapting books to the big screen. Pushing back the start of production of CITY OF ASHES was a decision we did not take lightly. But after speaking with all of our partners on the creative and distribution side, it was clear that it will be beneficial to have more time to reposition the film in the current market place. THE
MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series has an incredibly loyal and ardent fan base and is a bestselling book series. While taking Cassandra Claire’s vision to the screen we want to make sure to draw on the full potential of the franchise."

What this says to me is that Constantin is looking to make sure our franchise is saved and successful.  They realize many things led to the "low" numbers, like date of release, competition, and overall box office numbers for all movies out at the time.  So stay strong, stay calm and continue to show your support!
