Burke and Hare – First look at Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis as grave robbers
Posted by LiveFor on February 25, 2010
They’ve started filming Burke and Hare up in Edinburgh, Scotland. Directed by John Landis it stars Starring Pegg, Serkis, Isla Fisher, Jessica Hynes, Tom Wilkinson, Hugh Bonneville, Tim Curry and Sir Christopher Lee.
This is out first glimpse of what the characters look like.
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.
Looking good so far. Keep checking back as we may have some words from Mr Pegg before too long.
