The movie. Pleeeeeeaaaasssseee! I wouldn't argue that the book indeed would always be better than the movie but how I wish to see this turned into a movie.

k-bookee The series isn't the same as the movie. Jamie Campbell Bower is a better Jace Wayland, both in looks and acting. Let's all hope that there will be a second movie with all the former actors reprising their role. Just love Lily Collins so much. ^^
Zelia They are making it into a tv series instead. I stared watching it on Netflix and it is honestly so disappointing.... Really wish they made it into a movie series instead of the show:'(
Aimee IMHO, I think that while the casting for the movie was better, Shadowhunters does a better job of bringing the story to life. There is so much inner dialogue/thoughts/back story in the book that doing a straight adaptation like the movie makes it lose its luster (disclaimer: read the book after seeing the movie - may be the reason for my discontent). The Shadowhunters series does not stick to the books to the letter, but the deviations help fill in gaps and bring to life some of the things that the movie struggles to bring across.
Qiang Jiayuan The series is so much better than the movie, it sticks to the storyline but adds on its own features that were much better. The movie just completely follows the book, which is really boring. And Kat and Dom are the best lead actors, even though Lily Collins is so much prettier as Clary.
Ayus Dewantinr Shadowhunters name of the tv show
Caitlin The first book, City of bones, is already a movie and the rest of the series I think will be made into a T.V. show so they can describe the events more than they could in a movie.
L.J. Kerry I heard the City of Ashes movie is coming out some time in 2015, I'm not honestly sure, but on a book group I am part of on Facebook I asked this question and they said that year
Usaamah The city of ashes doesnt have a movie, but the first book of the series has already been made into a movie, and was released in 2013
Alta Waller they turned it into a series saw it on hulu. it was a real let down they changed so much and not for the better.
Mahdi i am pushing through this. slowly, but i promise, i am. i really hope i dont end up resenting this series by the end of it. right now, im not hating it. but i still cant find anything worth immediately loving.
Vivian I think it did get turned into a movie. You can watch it on YouTube for $3.99
Eleanor Smythe there is a netflix's series out at the moment however it isn't the same as the book which is upsetting in a way
Melanie Vasquez There is a tv show that is coming out soon. They are currently filming it right now. You can find more things about the tv show on the twitter account.
