Deadline is reporting that the 1983 animated cult classic Fire and Ice by iconic illustrator Frank Frazetta is getting a live-action remake with Robert Rodriguez as director.
Sin City director Robert Rodriguez, a longtime friend of the artist, has been quietly pushing for the deal for quite awhile and now, Deadline reports, Sony has acquired the rights. The intention is to, Deadline reports, turn the movie, created by Frazetta and Ralph Bakshi, into a fantasy adventure franchise, “informed by the dreamlike worlds Frazetta poured into his paintings.”
The movie tells the story of encroaching glaciers controlled by an evil Queen trying to freeze over the planet. When the daughter of the king of Firekeep is kidnapped, Larn and Darkwolf set out to rescue her.
