Ealing Studios has released the first official trailer for the upcoming John Landis-directed comedic thriller Burke and Hare starring Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis in a comedic take on the true story of the 1828 Edinburgh body-snatchers William Burke and William Hare.
The film co-stars Isla Fisher, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Curry, Christopher Lee, Hugh Bonneville and Stephen Merchant and serves as Landis’s first feature film since 1998’s Susan’s Plan. However, considering we’re talking about the director who helmed films such as An American Werewolf in London, The Blues Brothers, Trading Places and Coming To America, there is sure to be some excitement concerning his return to the bigscreen.
Burke and Hare is currently without a release date. Check out the trailer directly below.
