Frost was one of a team of writers on the 2005 and 2007 "Fantastic Four" movies, so obviously he has at least some connection to comic book properties. Freddie's dialogue in the Great Northern scene just doesn't feel like something Lynch would have written. Too bad he didn't develop the character more for him to play such a crucial role.
agree about the Freddie thing most likely being almost purely a Frost creation.. even more reminiscent of a Fantastic Four type of movie, his dialouge with James and the end scene with VolleyBOB is reminiscent of the Paladin Prophecy. i picked up the first volume in the series a few years back on the strength of Frost's name and the plot bears some striking similarities to Freddie.. in broad strokes it's about an ordinary kid without any extreme focus in his life who is suddenly clued in by what seem to be supernatural forces that he has a destiny to fulfill. there's a climactic battle between the good guys and the baddies at the end, and if i remember right there's even some sort of magickal power glove of iron that plays a part in the outcome. i need to dig that up to confirm though, i'll try to do that later today if i find the book.
