You might have seen Dom in Vampire Academy movie or more recently, in Taylor Swift’s music video for ‘Style.’

At first look, I thought he’d make the perfect Alec Lightwood, but the more I think about it, the more I feel like after Jamie Bower, this is seriously the perfect choice for Jace!

McG to direct first episode of Shadowhunters; pre-production on going in Toronto

Shadowhunters is set to premiere in early 2016 on ABC Family. McG, who is also the executive producer on the show along with Ed Decter, will be directing the first episode, Deadline has reported.

I’m pretty excited since McG has worked on Supernatural, and I hope understands the nuances of a fantasy-based story.

He’s also been tweeting about the behind-the-scenes from the show. Check out some of them below:

Below is the full press release:

ABC FAMILY ENTERS A WORLD WHERE ALL LEGENDS ARE TRUE WITH THE SAGA SERIES PICK UP OF “SHADOWHUNTERS”
Series Is Based on the Beloved New York Times Bestselling Book Series The Mortal Instruments by Author Cassandra Clare

Burbank, CA (March 30, 2015) – ABC Family has picked up its first scripted saga-to-series, “Shadowhunters,” from The Mortal Instruments franchise, announced today by Tom Ascheim, President, ABC Family and Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, ABC Family. The series will go into production this May in Toronto.

Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, “Shadowhunters” follows 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend, Simon. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.

“’Shadowhunters’ is a big epic saga that will resonate with viewers who come to ABC Family for the ‘Harry Potter,’ ‘Hunger Games,’ and ‘Twilight’ franchises,” said Ascheim. “A New York Times bestseller for 122-consecutive weeks, with over 35 million copies in print worldwide, ‘Shadowhunters’ is the perfect story to share with our audience.”
Burke continued, “Clary is a strong, dynamic and captivating character that our audience will immediately identify with. They will want her to succeed and will root for her on her journey to become who she was always meant to be. The series has a passionate fan base and an expansive universe that can sustain multiple seasons to come.”

“I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the Shadowhunters to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters,” added book author, Cassandra Clare.

“Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Film, and Ed Decter serves as executive producer and showrunner.

Cast to be announced at a later date.

Exciting things are coming guys!

Cassie Clare meets ‘Shadowhunters’ writers, confirms Malec and more

Cassandra-Clare

Good news, Shadowhuters! Author Cassandra Clare met with the writers of the TV show in Los Angeles and took to her Twitter to quash some of the more terrible of the recent rumors about the show.


Cassie confirms the show will start from the beginning.


She also states that there is no Natalie – Simon’s rumored girlfriend.


Alec and Magnus’s romance stays.


While the characters will be aged, it will only be two years.


And lastly, it’s not long until we hear more!


More rumors regarding Clary and Simon on the ‘Shadowhunters’ TV show

Simon and Clary

Spoiler TV has posted a bunch of new rumored information about the Shadowhunters TV show, in addition to what we heard last week.

- Manga is referenced. (Specifically Dragon Ball)
– Characters are aged up by about 2-3 years.
– Clary is attending the Brooklyn Academy Of Art.
– The Institute is seen in the pilot.
– Simon’s band has different members. This includes Natalie Adams (Simon’s girlfriend) with a pomeranian named Yeti and bass player Gary.

First the good things – I’m quite happy about Clary attending the Brooklyn Academy of Art. It’s very true to her, and what I assume she might have done in the years we don’t see her. [Actually, thanks to Cassie Clare, we’ll hear plenty about Clary in The Dark Artifices, but still for the sake of creative license for the show, this is a good move.]

The Manga reference gets a thumbs up from me too. We all know how important Manga/graphic novels/video games are to some of our beloved characters.

Now, for the really terrible. Why does Simon have a girlfriend? Just – why? A band was fine, but a girlfriend? Simon’s evolution would be impacted, no doubt, by this decision.

I was a Vampire Diaries reader before the show, and the changes to the show, though some were awesome and much needed, took the story in a completely different direction. For a franchise like TVD, the story carried on because most of its audience hadn’t read the books published in the 90s. But it’s not the same for Shadowhunters books. The audience is right here, and such a drastic change could backfire, again.

For now, I’ll take solace in the fact that this is still only a rumor.
