Concept Art For Robert Rodriguez's 'Fire & Ice'

Here's your first look at Robert Rodriguez's live-action remake of 'Fire & Ice' based on the work of the late Frank Frazetta. Rodriguez intends to join his work with Frazetta’s style to bring to life the sword-and-sorcery story of survivors in a land destroyed by a mystical ice age, much like he did with Frabk Miller on 'Sin City,' saying:
“I want it to look like you just stepped into one of his paintings, where you get to see his world, and how he saw people, anatomy, and composition and color,” Rodriguez told EW. “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’s the official synopsis for the movie, which Rodriguez aims to start in early 2012:

From his stronghold in Ice Peak, the evil Nekron sends forth a wave of deadly glaciers, forcing humanity to retreat to Fire Keep, a kingdom ruled by a generous king. When King Jarol’s daughter Teegra is kidnapped, young warrior Larn teams with the mysterious and legendary Dark Wolf, to rescue the princess and the realm from Nekron’s evil sorcery.
