Clearing up the massive casting confusion that began at the AFM this past November, Isla Fisher, Andy Serkis and Tom Wilkinson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) have all been locked to join Simon Pegg in Burke and Hare, a horror comedy that marks John Landis’ (An American Werewolf in London, “Thriller”) return to feature directing after more than 10 years. Written by Piers Ashworth and Nick Moorcroft, “Hare” is based on the true story a pair of the U.K.’s earliest serial killers, William Burke and William Hare, gravediggers who lucratively sold the corpses of their victims to a medical college for dissection. Serkis will play Hare opposite Pegg’s Burke. The movie begins shooting Jan. 31 in Edinburgh and London, bringing Landis back to the scene of his 1981 hit An American Werewolf in London.
