Tribute Interviews Director, Harald Zwart

Tribute got the chance to speak with the director for City of Bones, Harald Zwart. They talk about why Harald chose specifically this book to adapt, and the intricate details to the set...
What was your favorite part about filming in Toronto?
It reminded me of a European city, so after filming, there was always a great place to go and have dinner or just walk around the streets of Yorkville. I just really fell in love with Toronto as a city.
Do you believe in “monsters, nightmares and legends whispered around campfires,”—as heard in the movie?
(Laughs) That’s a great question! Well, I do now!
What made you change your mind? Was it the movie?
Yes, after exploring the idea that us humans, we are limited in our perceptions—we don’t see everything that’s around us—I do believe that there’s more between heaven and earth than what we actually have the capacity to take in.
There are so many movie adaptations of novels being released right now, why did you choose to be a part of this one?
I just really liked the tone of the book. It’s got a good blend of humor and it takes the characters seriously. I think the journey of Clary, who is kind of in a detective story, trying to figure out her own mind—I thought it was wonderfully, psychologically complex and I know that young people are so smart that they can easily be challenged by these things, but they’ll all get it.
What makes a novel fit to be turned into a movie?
I can only speak for this one, but the way Cassandra writes is very visual. Once I start reading it, all the images pop into my head and all these wonderful places that she is describing and the portal. It’s just the mood of the whole thing, just lent itself to any visual inspiration. Look at what the fans have been doing for years! It’s clear that this book has inspired young, creative fans all over the world to keep making their own movie posters, their own version of the movie trailer—so they all seem to be very visually inspired by this.

Cassandra Clare and Harald Zwart Talk Movie Adaptation at the LA Times Festival of Books

Cassandra Clare and Harald Zwart both attended the Los Angeles Times: Festival of Book this past weekend. They talk about the adaptation of City of Bone. (For a quick tweet run-down click here)
“It’s a bit of an exercise in letting go,” said Claire, of being an author and selling the movie rights. She had no expectations of being involved, and only found out about Lilly Collins being cast as Clary from, like everyone else – but once Cassie signaled her interest in being involved, and once Harald came on board to direct, suddenly the doors were wide open and Cassie was weighing in on everything from casting to prop design. As to why the Hollywood types were willing to let her be so involved, Clare recalled one producer telling her: “Cassie, I never want you to say Harold and Robbie ruined my book. I want you to say, Harold, Robert, and I ruined my movie.”

The 'City of Bones' cast at WonderCon 2013

Today (March 30), the City of Bones cast, the director (Harald Zwart) and Cassandra Clare all made an appearance at WonderCon 2013.

IGN tells us:
They screened the brand new trailer for the film before taking questions from the audience. Clare said that the film, which she hasn't seen in its entirety, is as close to the spirit of the book as possible without being 10 hours long. She recalled the great access she was given, from hours of conversations with the casting director to visits to the set and even being able to make a cameo in the movie.
Collins said they needed to make Clary accessible to the audience, someone who could be your friend amidst all these crazy situations. Bower said his character will be both vulnerable and snarky. All of the panelists said (surprise!) how much they enjoyed working on the film and with each other.
The shadowhunters at WonderCon 2013 got a first look at the theatrical trailer to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Although most of us couldn't be there, we have picture from the ones who did make it!

Our first picture of Lily Collins in an interview, and look at that, she's dressed in black!

Harald Zwart Explains Why

MTV hosted an interview with The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones director, Harald Zwart.
During this interview Harald Zwart explains why he wanted to sign on to the Mortal Instruments.

Music News
In case you can't watch the video, here's a summary:
Harald Zwart likes the idea of a girl just waking up one day and realizing she's nothing like what she thought she was and her mom is nothing like what she thought her mom was. And it's a detective story of what's actually buried inside her mind. She's actually very heroic and brave, even though she's told not to do something, she does it anyways. Zwart also likes the love story in the City of Bones; the dramatic and true love story with all the effects and vampires and other creatures.
Harald Zwart was drawn mostly to the romantic aspect of the story. When Zwart became apart of the crew, Lily Collins was already casted, and he thinks she's perfect for the role. That was part of the reason why Harald Zwart decided to join.
"You'll see in the movie, she's adorable and really tough and she plays [Clary] very realistic. She has a huge range of emotions."
Harald Zwart  believes they have a great cast, too. Although there have been many mixed feelings about Jamie Campbell Bower playing Jace, Harald tells us:
"The fans will be very surprised. Once they see him be Jace, there's no other option. [Jamie] is absolutely fantastic as Jace. He has that angelic, very dry sense of humor which Jace also has in the book. I think people will adopt to him immediately and be very happy with him."
 This is what MTV had to say about The Mortal Instruments:
The young-adult demographic has been of particular interest to producers of late. Thanks to the wild successes of "Harry Potter" and "The Twilight Saga," studios are scrambling to fill the void with fledgling franchises like "Beautiful Creatures" and "The Mortal Instruments."
"In terms of 'Beautiful Creatures' and 'Mortal Instruments,' it couldn't be more obvious they're going for the 'Twilight' crowd," Contrino said. " 'Hunger Games,' to me, is closer to 'Harry Potter' to how big it is. If you compare the first 'Hunger Games' to the first 'Harry Potter,' it's bigger. I think 'Mortal Instruments' and 'Beautiful Creatures' would fit the 'Twilight' mold."
