Lily Collins’ “Mortal Instruments” Sequel Hits a Snag

She worked extensively to promote her latest flick “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” so Lily Collins is no doubt disappointed at the lacking box office numbers thus far.

The “Abduction” actress, who was spotted at LAX International Airport on Tuesday (September 10), will not report for production on the sequel “The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes” later this year as previously planned, as the project has been shelved indefinitely.

Producer Martin Moszkowicz told press, “Constantin Film has a long tradition of adapting books to the big screen. Pushing back the start of production of City of Ashes was a decision we did not take lightly.”

“After speaking with all of our partners on the creative and distribution side, it was clear that it will be beneficial to have more time to reposition the film in the current market place.”
