Ray Harryhausen and the new Sinbad movie

Movie legend and stop-motion animation god Ray Harryhausen has been coaxed out of retirement (he's 84) to supervise the special effects of the upcoming Keanu Reeves film, The 8th Voyage of Sinbad. Harryhausen is reportedly delighted with the choice of Reeves, predicting he will be the best Sinbad ever. (Since Keanu's competition includes John Phillip Law and John Wayne's son Patrick, that may not be as hyperbolic as it sounds.)

In other news, Harryhausen was recently inducted into The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, and a special edition DVD has just been released containing all of his earliest short features.
