Colin Gets into ‘The Meat Trade’

ON

Damn that headline sounds dirty, but it isn’t exactly the dirt you pervs may be thinking of as Colin Firth and Robert Carlyle will star in Antonia Bird’s The Meat Trade based on a script written by Trainspotting novelist Irvine Welsh.

Variety describes the flick as the following:

Set in Edinburgh, it’s a contemporary reworking of the crimes of the 19th century bodysnatchers Burke and Hare.

This notorious duo made a living robbing graves to provide doctors with cadavers for experimentation. When the supply of corpses dried up, they started killing tramps.
