THQ has pulled out the big guns and signed up two famous actors for its new Wii game.

Equally potty Dennis Hopper and Billy Bob Thornton are both set to provide voices for Deadly Creatures - an action adventure game with a twist that is due out in February.

Gamers control a scorpion and a tarantula, fighting against equally "deadly creatures" (see what they did there?) like black widow spiders and lizards.

"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".

"Gamers are really going to love Deadly Creatures", added Dennis Hopper. Of course, he's no stranger to gaming having appeared in the Super Mario Bros. movie years ago.
