First Look At Pegg And Serkis As BURKE AND HARE

Say what you will about the British press – And believe me, there is a lot of negative to be said, especially when it comes to their tabloids – when a major film starts shooting in Great Britain, they are usually the ones who have the first pictures of the production. So it is again with director John Landis’ dark comedy Burke And Hare, currently shooting in Edinburgh, Scotland, thanks to the Edinburgh Evening Standard and the Daily Mail. The two papers have published a pair of photos each of stars Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis in the the film’s title roles as two 19th century grave robbers who sold freshly (and illegally) exhumed cadavers to doctors and medical students. Isla Fisher, Jessica Hynes (Pegg’s former co-star on the British series Spaced) , Tom Wilkinson, Hugh Bonneville, Tim Curry and Sir Christopher Lee co-star.
