Weinsteins mad for ‘Igor’

Brothers strike toon with monster movie

The Weinstein Co. is continuing its animation run by picking up North American rights to Exodus Film Group’s upcoming CG-animated comedy “Igor.” Penned by Chris McKenna, “Igor” is a twist on the monster genre, following a mad scientist’s hunchbacked lab assistant who has big dreams of winning the Evil Science Fair. Pic will expand on Exodus’ upcoming animated short “Igor: Unholy Frijoles.” The short features such voice talent as Christian Slater in the lead role, with Jay Leno, Steve Buscemi and John Cleese supporting. No cast or helmer is set for the feature-length “Igor” pic, which is in pre-production.
