New Harryhausen Projects

If you're a Ray Harryhausen fan like me, this article was exciting news. Some of my earliest movie memories are of watching his films -- and they still hold up, great fun. I was sad that he was right there at the L.A. Times Festival of Books this year, and because I was actually working I didn't get to go hear him speak. It's interesting to read the long list of "unrealized ideas" in Harryhausen's book An Animated Life: The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Atlantis, Beowulf, Conan, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Hobbit (!), The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Princess Bride, even a proposed remake of King Kong back in 1970, and many others.
