It’s no secret that’s all about the upcoming film version of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. (Did you see our report from the set visit?!) So it should come as no surprise that we were floored to hear the latest news that the series’ prequel trilogy, The Infernal Devices, is getting its own feature.

According to The Mortal Instruments Executive Producer Martin Moszkowicz, who was approached by a fan about the possibility of a movie edition of the TID franchise, it could actually happen. He tweets, “we are working on the screenplay.” {INSERT SQUEALS HERE}

Earlier this month, we announced the reader-voted best book series of all time, Harry Potter. But, lo and behold, The Mortal Instruments came in at a close second, just edging out The Hunger Games, and The Infernal Devices took the fourth spot, just above Vampire Academy and Divergent. So it seems to us that with all of the aforementioned titles becoming flicks, it makes perfect sense that TID get ’em as well. Though, we’re assuming its push to the big screen will rely heavily on the success of the Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower-led film.

Last week, the final installment in the series, The Clockwork Princess, hit store shelves for the first time. Since then, author Cassandra Clare‘s been on tour across the country, pen in hand, to meet and greet dedicated fanatics. When she herself was asked about casting male lead Will Herondale in the potential movie, she mentioned that Max Irons or Nicholas Hoult would be her dream choice. But we want to leave it to you. Who do you picture as Will, or even Tessa or Jem? What do you think about the idea of an Infernal Devices flick? Spill in the comments!
