Hollywood Reporter has announced the screenwriter for the first installment of the prequel series to The Mortal Instruments, titled The Infernal Devices. Stephanie Standitz has been hired to adapt Cassandra Clare’s Victorian novels for the big screen.
Standitz is an actress turned screenwriter with only a short film and the script for Meg Cabot’s The Mediator under her belt. Constantin films are currently developing the prequel series with plans to film the next two films for the The Mortal Instruments back-to-back, you can read that article here. I have faith in Standitz to take care of our beloved characters from The Infernal Devices. THR also mentions that they are currently on the search for a director for the project, which is very exciting!
What are your thoughts? Any particular actor or actress you would like to see in the movie? Who do you think would be a good fit to direct The Infernal Devices?
