Zegers, who played Damian from 2009 until 2011 on the CW show, will play Alexander "Alec" Lightwood, a Nephilim. "Alec is described as having a thin, wiry build and black hair and striking blue eyes."

The movie is based on the 2007 YA/urban fantasy novel by Cassandra Clare of the same name. It's the first in a series which has spawned a steam-punk trilogy spinoff, "The Infernal Devices".

Lily Collins ("Mirror Mirror", "Abduction") and Jamie Campbell Bower ("The Twilight Saga") will play the lead characters, Clary Fray and Jace Wayland. Other cast members include Jemima West ("The Borgias"), Robert Maillet ("Sherlock Holmes: Games of Shadows"), Aidan Turner ("Being Human"), Robert Sheehan ("Misfits"), Godfrey Gao, Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones"), Jared Harris ("Sherlock Holmes", "Fringe"), and CCH Pounder ("Avatar", "Warehouse 13").

"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" is expected to hit theaters August 2013.
