John Landis hasn't had a feature film in theaters in over 10 years but that's about to change this weekend with the UK release of the Simon Pegg romantic comedy (albeit a dark romantic comedy) BURKE & HARE. The film, which stars Pegg and Andy Serkis as real life duo William Burke and William Hare, who in the 1800s were responsible for a number of murders in Edinburgh. In Landis' version, their get-rich-quick scheme of providing cadavers for city doctors runs into a glitch when they run out of bodies. Looking to keep the scheme going, they find comical ways to bump off locals.

We've got an exclusive look at a few new pics from the film, which in addition to Pegg and Serkis stars Isla Fisher, Tim Curry and Tom Wilkinson. If you're as big a Landis fan as we are, you're gonna want to check this out (sadly though, the film doesn't yet have US distribution). Check out the pics below!

I wonder if anyone gets their head lopped off by helicopter blades.

In all fairness Stateside you get far more movies released earlier than we do. Considering the cast is largely made up of Brits, it makes sense to release it on this side of the pond first.
