Major Casting Replacement for John Landis’ ‘Burke and Hare’

Star Simon Pegg just posted an updated on his Twitter page that revealed that David Tennant has been replaced in John Landis’ forthcoming Burke and Hare. “David Tennant had to drop out of B&H but by sheer glorious serendipity a legend of Middle Earth and Skull Island has come aboard. Welcome AS,” he writes. AS? The incredible Andy Serkis will now take on the role of William Hare alongside Pegg as William Burke. Other unconfirmed roles include: John Cleese, Bill Bailey, Pollyanna McIntosh, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Nighy. Based on a true story, Burke And Hare is about two 19th century graverobbers who find a lucrative business providing cadavers for an Edinburgh medical school.
