AFM ’08: Landis to Direct Graverobbing Comedy


True story of necro-entrepreneurs

Ealing Studios tapped John Landis (An American Werewolf in London) to direct Burke and Hare for Fragile Films.

Written by Piers Ashworth and Nick Moorcroft, Burke and Hare is based on a true story and follows two 19th-century graverobbers who find a lucrative business providing dead bodies for an Edinburgh medical school.

Casting has begun and principal photography is expected to begin in early 2009 with Barnaby Thompson producing.

Landis is also attached to the William Gaines biopic Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines. Read what Landis had to say about that film in our chat earlier this year here.
