Leslie Nielsen's last movie -- a small budget animated film -- may never see the light of day ... because after Leslie voiced his part ... producers couldn't afford to pay for the final animation.

Leslie Nielsen Last Movie

Nielsen finished his voice work over a year ago, according to the director of the movie, Bryan Waterman. He tells TMZ that a "great deal" of production still has to be done before the movie can be released -- and by a "great deal" he means the majority of the animation. 

Waterman tells us the project has been taking donations in return for a "special thanks" at the end of the movie -- but right now they're still searching for investors.

Waterman plans on adding a dedication to Nielsen, assuming the movie ever gets finished.
