After finishing up the colossal film series he’s been working on in New Zealand (The Hobbit — you might’ve heard of it), Aidan’s new project is ‘City of Bones’. Based on the first novel in the young adult urban fantasy series ‘The Mortal Instruments’ by Cassandra Clare, Aidan plays avuncular Luke- a bookstore owner, werewolf, and mentor to young Clary (a demon hunter played by Lily Collins). City of Bones is the first book of six, so it’s conceivable that this could also be the first film of six. We’ll see.
Also appearing in the film are Robert Sheehan (Misfits), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors), Jamie Campbell Bower (Twilight Series), and Lena Heady.
Filming started in Toronto in mid-August and is expected to last three months. Release is expected in August 2013.
