Rodriguez To Direct Sony’s “Fire and Ice”

“Sin City” helmer Robert Rodriguez is set to direct a live-action remake of Ralph Bakshi’s animated 1983 feature “Fire And Ice” for Sony Pictures.

Based on characters created by Bakshi and Frank Frazetta, the original Fox film used rotoscoping with scenes shot in live action and traced on to animation cells.

The story is set in a village destroyed by a surging glacier, the domain for an Ice Lord, and the only survivor vows to avenge this act of destruction.

Rodriguez has been developing drafts for some time which Gary Michael Walters, Matthew Rhodes and Michel Litvak have been funding.
