The fate of the potential 'Mortal Instruments 2,' to be adapted from the second installment of Cassandra Clare's young-adult books, 'City of Ashes,' was up in the air after the faltering box office numbers of the first film. But even though Constantin Films had shut down production on the sequel for the time being, fans have nothing to fear, as it looks like it is back on track. But why the change of heart?

The new trailer for 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' is surely going to delight fans of Cassandra Clare's ongoing young adult book series, but what about the rest of us schmucks? From what we can tell, the new movie looks like a combination of 'Twilight,' 'Harry Potter' and 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' but without any of the aspects that made those franchises worth talking about (yes, even 'Twilight' had its moments). We clicked play on this trailer knowing nothing and when it ended, we were only baffled.

We recently posted about 'Jane Got a Gun,' which is one of the most troubled productions going these days, but it's got nothing on the adaptation of 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' which has gone in and out development since the book was published in 2009. Now it looks like it might finally get made with Lily Collins in negotiations to be its leading lady.

The new trailer for 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' looks like it has all of the ingredients to be the next big Young Adult movie franchise. A young girl with special powers? Check. Two love interests from completely different worlds? Check. A supernatural mystery that's in desperate need of solving? Check. The only question now is whether or not this thing will have the appeal of 'Twilight' or 'The Hunger Games.'
