Frank Frazetta and Ralph Bakshi got together and made Fire and Ice back in 1983. Using his rotoscoped animation technique Bakshi tried to make the paintings of Frank Frazetta come to life. The results were mixed at best.
Now director Robert Ridriguez wants to use the same cinematic techniques he used to bring Frank Miller's Sin City to the screen to film a live action remake of Fire and Ice.
“I want it to look like you just stepped into one of his (Frazetta's) paintings, where you get to see his world, and how he saw people, anatomy, and composition and color,” Rodriguez said. “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.”
Here is some of the concept art:
