Robert Rodriguez is planning to direct a remake of Fire and Ice after finishing up production on Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Here's what the director had to say about the project in a recent interview.

"That's in the works to go right into after Sin City, Frank Frazetta's Fire and Ice. We're almost done with the script; we've got it pretty much 70 percent there. I'm really excited about that one. For Frazetta fans, this will be the ultimate tribute to what he did, and inspired so many people. I think it's going to be pretty powerful when people see it."

The original, animated Fire and Ice, directed by Ralph Bakshi, was set in the stronghold at Icepeak. The evil Queen Juliana and her son, Nekron, send forth a wave of glaciers, forcing humanity to retreat south towards the equator.

The director is also working on Machete Kills, where the U.S. government recruits Machete (Danny Trejo) to battle his way through Mexico to take down an arms dealer.
