A Fire and Ice Film from Robert Rodriguez When did that Happen?

Wow this one has definitely caught me with my pants down!

The 1983 Ralph Bakshi/Frank Frazetta animated fantasy adventure Fire and Ice is one of my favourite films. The story, the trippy landscapes, great action scenes and soundtrack are things that I never grow tired off. The film also sports ‘Darkwolf’ one the best badasses on screen, who’s basically a cross between batman and conan.

I always wondered what Fire and Ice would look  like as a live action film and thanks to Robert Rodriguez  I’m going to find out.

Apparently Rodriguez turned up to last week’s comic con with some concept art from the film which he announced he was making over a year ago.

Check out the concept art below.

The art looks great but I’ll be holding judgement until I see footage or at least actual screen shot as I’m really not sure about this one. Personally I could sit down and watch Fire and Ice tomorrow. It doesn’t feel dated to me and bringing this to live action feels like bringing Toy Story to the big screen. Fingers crossed I’m proven wrong.
