Constantin Films Delays ‘Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes’

'Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' has grossed more than $70 million worldwide

After a disappointing B.O. opening for “Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” Constantin Films has delayed the production of the next installment “Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes.”

Principal photography was expected to start later this year and Constantin said in a statement that the reason for the delay is to “analyze the results to date and reposition the franchise in order to maximize the results for future installments.”

Since opening on Aug. 21, the $60 million dollar adaptation of the Cassandra Clare tome has grossed more than $70 million worldwide but only $28 million domestically.

Helmer Harald Zwart was expected to return, as were stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower.
