Marlene King, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones also stars Lena Headey, Jared Harris and Kevin Zegers.  TheHarald Zwart-directed picture is set to start shooting in Toronto later this month.

As for Plush, Variety reports on Samuel’s addition to the cast.  [Update:  New details make no mention of a psychic psychologist, which had previously been reported.] They also have a few more plot details this time around.  Browning plays a rock star on the rise who suffers a setback when her brother, a fellow band member, dies due to a drug overdose.  Married with two children, her character seeks solace in a new guitarist (Samuel), instead of her husband (Gigandet).  When their creative collaboration turns sexual, Browning’s character fears for her family as she begins to realize her new partner may be a madman. Hardwicke will also produce Plush, which she co-wrote with Artie Nelson.
