THQ has announced that Academy Award Winning actor Billy Bob Thornton and Academy Award Nominated actor Dennis Hopper are lending their voices to THQ's upcoming action thriller, Deadly Creatures.

"What surprised me about Deadly Creatures is how it looks... like watching a movie," said Billy Bob Thornton. "The scorpion and tarantula are like two actors meeting up for a gun fight."

Hopper added: "Gamers are really going to love Deadly Creatures."

On the pair's involvement in the unusual Wii game, Nick Wlodyka, General Manager, Rainbow Studios commented: "The AAA talent helps bring this cinematic storyline of greed and betrayal to life in a one-of-a-kind action-thriller exclusively on Wii."

Deadly Creatures is scheduled for release worldwide in February 2009.
