Robert Rodriguez recently announced at San Diego Comic-Con that he was going to develop a live-action version of artist Frank Frazetta's Fire and Ice, which is inspired by the artists incredible artwork and the 1983 animated version. Rodriguez has teamed up with the estate of the legendary fantasy artist for the film project. The concept art that the director showed off at Comic-Con has now been released and you can see it here. This artwork is awesome, and I'm excited to see Rodriguez's plans on bringing this film and style to life on the big screen. In a interview with EW Rodriguez said that,
I want 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.
If he could pull this off effectively, it would be stunningly incredible! Check out the concept art and tell us what you think!
Here's a description of the film:
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.
