Below is an excerpt:
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How involved have you been in the movie-making process?
CASSANDRA CLARE: They are very good about listening to my opinions. It’s interesting to me because I’m coming from the world of books. A book is really a one-person project, and a movie is a multiple-person project. So they’ve let me be a voice in the room, which I really appreciated, but mine is not the only voice. They’ve let me participate in discussions about casting, and they consulted me about props and about what people’s costumes should look like. And they let me have unlimited access to the set, so I was there for quite a bit of the shooting which was really nice. But the project is really [director Harald Zwart’s] project. You know the director is always going to be the person with the final say.
