Studios have been snapping up the film rights to book franchises in the hopes of hitting on the next “Twilight” or “Hunger Games.” For a while, it looked like Cassandra Clare’s “The Mortal Instruments” books would be the next big thing, but a poor box office showing for this summer’s first installment, “City of Bones,” has put the future of the franchise in question.
Even as recently as August, when “City of Bones” opened, director Harald Zwart was in pre-production on “City of Ashes.” However, production company Constantin Film has issued a release announcing that those plans have been put on hold while they work to “analyze the results to date and reposition the franchise in order to maximize results for future installments.”
