Shadowhunters is based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. The series follows Clary Fray who discovers on her birthday that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Following her mother’s kidnapping, Clary finds herself thrown into the world of demon hunting with the enigmatic Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend Simon.
Dominic's character Jace is an expert Shadowhunter and a skilled soldier in the fight against demons. In the wake of his father’s death, Jace is determined to seek revenge on the man who is responsible. Dominic has previously played Christian Ozera in Vampire Academy and is due to be seen in the forthcoming feature Take Down for Pinewood films.
Shadowhunters is produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Ed Decter and McG. Filming will begin June.
