The Weinstein Co. has tapped Tony Leondis to direct CG pic “Igor.”

Leondis served as scribe on animated films “The Prince of Egypt” and “Home on the Range.” He also helmed homevid release “Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch.”

“Igor,” from Exodus Film Group, examines the machinations of a mad scientist’s assistant. Christian Slater and John Cleese are among those voicing characters.
