It's been a long time since fans of Cassandra Clare's Internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series got any news regarding the movie franchise or more basically regarding the future of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes" film. The film previously set to shoot last September was put on hold when Sony Pictures wanted to regroup after the first film underperformed at the box office. ScienceFiction.com reported on Tuesday that "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" director is no longer attached to its sequel.

Here's what Zwart had to say about the project: “The studio is still certain that they will make this movie, but it’s not me who directs it. I will focus on other projects in the future. Shadow Hunters was a great experience and it gave me a good window to show off.”

Please keep in mind that Sony has not made any official announcements regarding this. Zwart was recently attached to another project, "The 12th Man" a World War 2 film so it looks like the director will be busy in the future. However, at this point fans should be excited to see any news that indicates that the project is moving forward.
