Update: BD reader ‘Dave’ sent us in a video of Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis on set! Filming is officially underway for John Landis’ horror comedy, Burke & Hare, which hit the streets of Edinburgh last week. Starring Andy Serkis and Simon Pegg in the title roles as 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. Beyond the break you’ll find a few pics from the filming locations in Edinburgh with hopefully more on the horizon.
“Burke & Hare is a comedic take on the true story of the 1828 Edinburgh body-snatchers William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis). These two Irish entrepreneurs discover that a dead body can fetch a hefty price when the demands of the leading medical professors Dr. Knox (Tom Wilkinson) and Dr. Monroe (Tim Curry) reach beyond that of the local supply.”
