After a few weeks of speculations, Entertainmnet.ie is now reporting that Sigourney Weaver has been cast as the Inquisitor of the Clave, Imogen Herondale, in The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, as confirmed by director Harald Zwart.

It’s been confirmed, the wonderful Sigourney Weaver is on board to star in Harald Zwart‘s sequel to The Mortal Instruments. This one’s called The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes.

While there had been rumours recentlyof Miss Weaver’s involvement, Zwart confirmed mid interview with entertainment.ie yesterday that it is indeed a goer. “Yes Sigourney is on board, now you can break the story!”.

City of Ashes begins filming in a month in Toronto.

This is our first casting confirmation for the second installment, and I love it! Ever since the rumors had surfaced, I was really set on the idea of Sigourney as Inquisitor Herondale. What do you think?

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens in theaters starting with the US on August 20 – which is in two days! But that isn’t stopping the behind-the-scenes work on the franchise. Director Harald Zwart shared a picture on his Instagram, where he’s working on the City of Ashes storyboards with artist Naeim Khavari, back in Toronto.

Check out the full picture in the gallery here (So awesome to finally have the separate albums for City of Ashes up!).

It’s so weird to get excited over both the projects together. But I’m really looking forward to watching City of Bones on the big screen, before production for the second installment kicks in next month.
