First Burke and Hare trailer springs to life

I didn't realize this project was already far along enough to spawn a trailer, but today we have are first spot for BURKE AND HARE, the Andy Serkis and Simon Pegg comedy about a real-life pair of graverobbers (and eventually murderers) in 19th century England.

It's directed by John Landis, best know for THE BLUES BROTHERS, COMING TO AMERICA, and one of my favorite sleeper comedies THREE AMIGOS. This would seem to be a bit of a step outside the box for him, but it does look promising.

Also starring are Isla Fisher with roles for Tim Curry, Christopher Lee and Stephen Merchant as well. It's nice to see Andy Serkis acting without a bunch of glowing mo-cap balls attached to him, and Pegg is always good for a laugh, though I will admit skipping HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS AND ALIENATE PEOPLE.

Check out BURKE AND HARE below:

Extra Tidbit: Oh, I forgot about RUN FATBOY RUN. Maybe he really does need Edgar Wright and Nick Frost at all times?
