After finding success with Hoodwinked!, The Weinstein Company has been adamant about keeping up with lower-budget CG animations. One such new animation is Igor, with the studio picking up a trio, or should I say quadruple, cast.

Slater, Buscemi, Cleese, Leno Star for Igor

According to Variety, Christian Slater, Steve Buscemi and John Cleese have jumped on board the feature Weinstein animation Igor; after having already taken part in the film short.

Though it has not been said whether Jay Leno will join the cast, he did have a part in the original Igor short.

Twist on the monster genre follows a mad scientist's hunchbacked lab assistant who has big dreams of winning the Evil Science Fair.

Slater will voice the lead role of Igor, with Buscemi as Scamper -- an intelligent, sarcastic lab rabbit -- and Cleese as Igor's evil master.

Cleese has been a huge addition to the Shrek franchise and should come across strong as the film's villain.

The Weinstein Company has North American rights and is representing international territories.

After the success of Hoodwinked! The Weinstein Company has gone big with animated projects including Opus, The Cricket in Times Square and a new installment in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. The studio has also unveiled plans for a Hoodwinked! sequel, Hood vs. Evil.

Stay tuned for updates.
