Constantin to Restart Production for CITY OF ASHES and Filming in 2014

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmation from Constantin about The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes continuing with production and filming in 2014.
Constantin is pushing ahead with its adaptations of Cassandra Clare’s best-selling Mortal Instruments franchise and plans to restart production on the second film in the series, The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, next year.
The executive producer, Martin Moskowicz, says that City of Bones' slight miss at the box-office can be explained by "[the] marketing campaign that was too narrowly focused on teenage fans, to the detriment of Clare’s 20- and 30-something readers"
And it also looks like Constantin has a lot of faith in this fandom:
"The fan response, from the blogosphere and the thousands of mails we have received, has encouraged us to keep going,” Moszkowicz told The Hollywood Reporter. “It's been overwhelmingly positive, in contrast to some other YA titles.”
Hopefully we'll get to see more set pictures in Toronto next year!

Constantin Films Postponing THE MORTAL INSTRMENTS: CITY OF ASHES Filming

The principal photography for The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes was set to shoot in Toronto Monday, September, 23, however after a soft opening weekend, Constantin Films will "analyze the results to date and reposition the franchise in order to maximize the results for future installments.”

Martin Moskowicz adds
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. But 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. THE
MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series has an incredibly loyal and ardent fan base and is a bestselling book series. While taking Cassandra Claire’s vision to the screen we want to make sure to draw on the full potential of the franchise.
Isn't Martin Moskowicz and the whole team the best? I guess we'll just have to wait a bit longer, but I'm sure a better movie will be worth the wait.
Hopefully we will get another Mortal Instruments movie, so keep on tweeting #WeNeedCityOfAshes

"Constantin is proceeding with plans to begin shooting CITY OF ASHES" Says Martin Moskowicz

Although City of Ashes has been scheduled to start this September, 23, a lot of fans were still afraid that there would be no City of Ashes movie due to the "soft" opening of just over $14 million for City of Bones. However, The Hollywood Reporter tells us that:
Despite the soft U.S. start, Moszkowicz said the reaction from the book's fan base has been "very positive." And he said that Constantin is proceeding with plans to begin shooting a sequel, Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, in Toronto this fall.
Also, keep in mind, there will be a international roll-out for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
Moszkowicz said it was still too early to make a prognosis forMortal Instrument's global box office revenue. But Constantin has proven before that it can successfully use international markets to recoup a shortfall in the U.S. Paul WS Anderson's The Three Musketeers (2011), a Constantin production, earned a disappointing $20 million in its U.S. release through Summit Entertainment, but went on to gross some $150 million worldwide.
Martin Moskowicz also states:
Martin Moszkowicz, head of film and TV at Constantin and an executive producer on Mortal Instruments, blamed the weak early U.S. figures on "a strongly competitive environment," which included a pair of similarly-skewing genre pics in Lionsgate's horror movie You're Next and Edgar Wright's sci-fi action-comedy The World's End. He also cited strong holdovers The Butler and We're the Millers. Sony's Screen Gems picked up the film for the U.S.
