Sony and Imax are continuing their late-summer 2013 partnership, adding Screen Gems’ young-adult adaptation “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” to the mega-screen lineup on Aug. 21.

The studio announced on Tuesday it also will release “Elysium” in Imax. Both films will be digitally re-mastered for the exhib.

“This exciting big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s fantasy-adventure series is a great addition to Imax’s summer film slate,” said Greg Foster, Imax Entertainment CEO and senior exec veep of Imax Corp.

Sony distribution topper Rory Bruer added: “As these worldwide bestsellers begin their journey to the screen with “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” we’re excited that moviegoers will have the chance to explore this world in Imax.”

The Y/A adaptation is set in contemporary New York City and follows a teen girl (Lily Collins), who discovers she is the descendant in a long line of demon-hunting warriors. Harald Zwart (“The Karate Kid”) directed the film, which is meant to be the first modestly-budgeted installment in a possible franchise for Screen Gems.

The Imax release of “Mortal Instruments” is sandwiched between “Elysium,” which bows Aug. 9, and Universal’s “Riddick,” set for release on Sept. 6.
