Tuesday Link-A-Mania

• The first cut of the new Evil Dead remake received a commercial-suicide NC17 rating when submitted to US censors (no-one 17 or under permitted) and has now been re-edited to make it an R-rating so that mainstream cinemas in the US will actually show it. [via ShockTillYouDrop]

• Teen actor Charlie Rowe (The Golden Compass, The Boat That Rocked, Neverland) has landed a leading role in Twentieth Century Fox’s loose adaptation of the BBC’s Walking With Dinosaurs, according to Variety. (Blimey, that’s still in development Hell? We first reported on that in 2010.) Barry Cook and Neil Nightingale are attached to direct the project, which has morphed the faux documentary series into a family adventure about two brothers on a search to find their missing father in the Arctic.

• The Damon Lindelof/Brad Bird movie formerly known as 1952 now has a new name: Tomorrowland. We still don’t have a clue what it’s about, but Brad Bird tweeted the visual clue below last week, and Daamon Lindelof tweeted, “We will tell you what it’s NOT about. And that would be ALIENS”.

• Lucasfilm has indefinitely postponed the 3D releases of Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith. In an official statement the Disney-owned company said, “Lucasfilm has decided to postpone this Fall’s scheduled release of Star Wars Episodes II and III in 3D. Given the recent development that we are moving forward with a new Star Wars trilogy, we will now focus 100 per cent of our efforts on Star Wars: Episode VII in order to ensure the best possible experience for our fans. We will post further information about our 3D release plans at a later date.” [via Deadline]

The Vampire Diaries was the number one most socially networked TV show in North America last week. Boosted by live tweeting by co-creator Julie Plec and the show’s cast, The Vampire Diaries generated nearly 865,000 social interactions across various platforms, according to Deadline.

• New TV trailer for Jack The Giant Slayer, out here in the UK on 22 March.

• Two more actors have been added to the cast of CBS’s Stephen King adaptation Under The Dome: Jolene Purdy (100 Things I Hate About You) and Nicholas Strong (Nashville). Purdy will play Dodee, a brilliant, eccentric engineer at the local radio station who will draw on her unique skills in an effort to make contact with the world outside the dome. Strong will play Phil, a popular radio DJ and indie rock fanatic, a charismatic figure with a dark secret. [via TVLine]

• Looks like the CW’s Wonder Woman-related project Amazon is on hold for the moment. The network has announced all its pilot orders for the next season an Amazon is not among them (though Julie Plec’s The Tomorrow People is – hurrah!). This doesn’t mean the show is dead, though. According to Deadline, the scripts simply weren’t ready, and it could resurface next pilot season, or maybe even sooner. Well, hey, they can’t afford to miss out on all the potential product placement, surely?

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has now surpassed the global box office tallies of The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring and The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers. It has so far amassed $939,623,831 worldwide, but will it overtake The Return Of The King’s $1.19 billion? (And none of the Lord Of The Rings films had 3D ticket prices to rely on…) [via Deadline]
