Tim Burton has nabbed some of his favorite actors to voice the stop-motion big screen adaptation of his popular short film Frankenweenie, which won't hit theaters until March of 2012. The director has hired Winona Ryder, whom he previously worked with on both Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, to play Elsa, and Martin Landau, whom he helped win an Academy Award for his performance as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood, to play Mr. Rzykruski.

According to Deadline, former SCTV Network 90 cast mates Martin Short and Catherine O'Hara will also be giving voice to the movie, playing five characters apiece. Both actors have also worked with Tim Burton in the past.
