Now that Dinotopia is being converted to a weekly series for ABC, all the lead roles have been recast. since the miniseries was never planned to be a pilot, casting decisions and such did not revolve around the long term. So now, the leads will be played by Erik Von Detten (The Princess Diaries), playing Carl; Shiloh Strong (Foxfire) as David, and Georgina Rylance (Man and Boy) as Rosemary.
It was announced some time ago that Chris Columbus, who has directed the first two Harry Potter films, plans to step aside after the completion of the second. Variety is now reporting that Alfonso Cuaron (The Little Princess, Great Expectations) will take over for Harry Potter and the Prisoneer of Azkaban, with filming scheduled to begni early next year. Not much is known on casting yet, other than all the main characters will return.
