'FIRE AND ICE' Live-Action Reboot Next For Robert Rodriguez

HeatVision has word from Robert Rodriguez himself that his live-action reboot of Fire And Ice is moving forward quickly. It will be his next directoral effort after Robert completes production on Machete Kills this spring and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For this summer/fall. Fire And Ice is based on the fantasy themed from legendary animation director Ralph Baskhi (Fritz The Cat, Lord of Thr Rings, Cool World) and artist Frank Frazetta. Robert will be using similar visual technigues that were used to create the world of Sin City to bring this fantasy world to life.

“That’s in the works to go right into after Sin City, Frank Frazetta’s Fire and Ice,” Rodriguez said during a telephone interview in conjunction with the Blu-ray release of his 1994 telefilm Roadracers. “We’re almost done with the script; we’ve got it pretty much 70 percent there. I’m really excited about that one.”

“I think the timing is going to work out just right, and we’ll have a finished script in the next month or so,” he said. “So we can start lengthier preproduction and we can go right into preproduction -- well, we’re actually in preproduction, sort of, or we’ve been doing a lot of the previsualization. But that would be the next thing after Sin City.”
