Wow! Here is some more kudos for Hunger Games. It seems that the oftentimes gun shy movie industry is taking a leap of faith thanks to the overwhelming success of Lionsgate's Hunger Games. Sony has finally gotten off the pot and picked up the option on Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instrument series. They have even schedules it for release on August 23, 2013. The director has been changed once so there seems to still be some maneuvering going on but we do have a Clary, Lily Collins from "Mirror, Mirror". (I know this movie didn't get a lot of love, but I thought her performance was reason enough to see it.) I am very interested to see the results of this YA series onscreen.
