Simon Pegg fans unite!

Simon Pegg AND Andy Serkis, count me in! That is exactly who will be starring in the new film by the legendary John Landis of "An American Werewolf in London" fame. Also listed in the movie are; Tim Curry (Anything can happen on Halloween, haha!), Isla Fisher, Christopher Lee, and Tom Wilkinson. Sporting an all-star cast it looks as if Burke & Hare should be quite the little horrific comedy film we have all been waiting for. Check out the trailer below.

After watching it however, I do agree with what most are saying online, and that is that the trailer is not the greatest to ever hit the net. But how can we discount the track record of Mr. Landis, Mr. Pegg, and other greats like Christopher Lee? I'm pretty sure once this hits the big screen we will all be cheering these two buffoons on as they create some pretty hilarious scenarios involving body snatching. Oh yeah did I mention that earlier? The duo of Burke and Hare were known for selling the dead to science for a paycheck. But what happens when they start running out of fresh dead bodies to sell, they make their own! Sounds like comedy gold.
