SDCC 11: Robert Rodriguez teams with Frazetta Productions


Robert Rodriguez announced a partnership between his studio and Frazetta Productions, a company built around the works of acclaimed artist Frank Frazetta. Rodrogiez announced a number of projects across many different media, but the ones we’re concerned with are the Frank Frazetta films he is planning. The first will be a remake of the 1983 animated film Fire and Ice, originally created as a collaboration between Frazetta and animator Ralph Bakshi. 

We were shown several pieces of pre-production concept art for Rodriguez’s Fire and Ice. Their stated goal was to make a film that looks like a Frank Frazetta painting, and from the concept art, they’re on their way. They also announced a Death Dealer film, though this seems a long way away.
