First Images of Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis in Director John Landis’ BURKE AND HARE

     February 24, 2010

The first images of Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis in director John Landis’ Burke and Hare have hit the net.  We can thank the production for filming on location in Edinburgh for the photos.  Starring Pegg, Serkis, Isla Fisher, Jessica Hynes, Tom Wilkinson, Hugh Bonneville, Tim Curry and Sir Christopher Lee, the movie follows two 19th century grave-robbers who started murdering folks so they could cash in on the cadaver money when they sold the corpses to doctors who wanted to study anatomy.  What’s also interesting about the film is…it’s based on real events.

According to the Daily Mail:

The real-life Burke and Hare, who hailed from Ireland, were responsible for the deaths of at least 17 people from 1827 until 1828.  After murdering their victims, the pair then went on to sell the bodies to Dr Robert Knox, who dissected them in his anatomy classes at Barclay’s anatomy school in Surgeon’s Square.
