According to the Hollywood Reporter, he's has teamed up with Mindfire Entertainment to establish the new Ray Harryhausen Presents brand, under which all manner of media will be releaed.

Two film scripts are already in development - one based around Greek mythology, and the other concerning alien invasion. He's also producing a series of TV movies and merchandising, plus those aforementioned games, but no further details have been revealed so far.
