Harryhausen will oversee all visual effects, which will be done in CGI (computer-generated imagery) but will be in the spirit of his stop-motion effects, [Mindfire CEO Mark] Altman said. Harryhausen said "utilizing the incredible advances in visual effects technology" would enable him to reach an entire new generation of audiences. "These stories are universal, and I could not be more thrilled than to revisit some of my favorite worlds -- past, present and future -- in these new films," he said.
Mindfire has been in the video game news for a variety of film projects lately. Just days ago, the company announced that it is developing a film based on Eidos' Fear Effect video game property. The company also participated in the production of Boll KG's House of the Dead, and is also involved with the upcoming Dead or Alive from Constantin Films and Impact Pictures.
