Kevin Zegers Cast In ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’
‘Dawn of the Dead’ actor Kevin Zegers has been cast in the adaption of The Mortals Instrument: City of Bones, Deadline is reporting. The film comes from Constanin Films and Screen Gems and is an adaption from the novel by the same name from writer Cassandra Clare, who also confirmed the news of Zeger’s casting this past Tuesday on her personal blog. “So yes, thank goodness, finally, all the paperwork is signed and I can tell you that YES IN FACT, YES ACTUALLY Alec is going to be Kevin Zegers.”
A fantasy, the story’s plot chronicles a young teenage girl who finds herself a relative of a line of half angel/half warriors known as the Shadowhunters who keep the world safe from demons. Zegers is slated to portray Alec Lightwood, who is described as a “tentative warrior”. Zegers joins a cast line-up of actress Lily Collins (The Blind Side) in the lead role, Lena Headey (Imagine Me & You) and Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows).
Over the years the 28-year old Canadian performer is known for his appearances in the TV series ‘Titanic: Blood and Steel’ as the character Mark Muir, the 2011 film ‘The Entitled’, ‘Girl Walks Into a Bar’ and ‘Frozen’. Zegers has also been seen in a short stint on the CW series ‘Gossip Girls’ in the role of Damian Daalgard and ‘Titans’ as Ethan Benchley.
Production on ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ will kick off later this summer in Toronto. Is Zegers a good fit for ‘City of Bones’? Weigh in below and tell us what you think.
