Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid) returns to direct the sequel along with Collins and Bower with shooting scheduled to start this fall from a screenplay penned by Jessica Postigo Paquette, who also wrote the script for City of Bones. Robert Kulzer (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Resident Evil franchise) is producing for Constantin Film alongside Don Carmody (Resident Evil franchise). Executive producers are Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne (The Lord of The Rings franchise) for Unique Features and Martin Moszkowicz for Constantin Film. Moszkowicz said: “We are outstandingly proud of what has been achieved on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – and what better proof would there be than putting the next installment of Cassandra Clare’s phenomenal vision – City of Ashes - into production now.”
So there’s that.
