Director Robert Rodriguez is reportedly remaking 1983 animated feature Fire and Ice.

The original film was a collaboration between animator Ralph Bakshi and fantasy/science fiction artist Frank Frazetta. Rodriguez has acquired the rights to the fantasy adventure movie, reports Aint it Cool News.

"I control the rights to this one. So it’s actually in my power to set it up and get it made, which wasn’t the case on other projects," Rodriguez said.

The 20th Century Fox original was created using the rotoscoping technique, in which scenes are filmed in live action and then traced on to animation cells.

Production details for Rodriguez's update have not been released.
