Influential visual effects artist Ray Harryhausen died in 2013, but his legacy lives on in a whole generation of filmmakers who he inspired with his jaw-dropping stop-motion effects. His work also lives on in the Harryhausen Foundation, which is responsible for protecting his collection of movie-related artifacts. Now the Foundation is teaming up with a company called Morningside Productions to produce a new Harryhausen-style adventure film in the vein of 1981’s Clash of the Titans that is tentatively titled Force of the Trojans.
