Robert Rodriguez announced at the San Diego Comic-Con that he’s teamed with the estate of fantasy artist Frank Frazetta for a live-action take on Fire and Ice, inspired by the artist’s legendary work and the previous 1983 animated version. You can now view the concept art he showed at the convention below.
Rodriguez told Entertainment Weekly that he wants “it to look like you just stepped into one of his paintings, where you get to see his world, and how he saw people, anatomy, and composition and color. It will feel like it’s real, but not real. It’ll be his reality. He saw things differently. He painted from his imagination. He didn’t take a photograph and just paint it.”
The film is described as follows:
From his stronghold in Ice Peak, the evil Nekron sends forth a wave of deadly glaciers, forcing humanity to retreat to Fire Keep, a kingdom ruled by a generous king. When King Jarol’s daughter Teegra is kidnapped, young warrior Larn teams with the mysterious and legendary Dark Wolf, to rescue the princess and the realm from Nekron?s evil sorcery.
