Simon Pegg paired up with new co-star
The Lord of the Rings star and all-around crumb from The Cottage is playing Hare opposite to Pegg’s Burke in the John Landis film Burke and Hare. Pegg revealed the news to the Twitter-verse after former Dr. Who David Tenant dropped out of the picture.
Written by Piers Ashworth and Nick Moorcroft, the film is based on the true story of William Burke and William Hare, two 19th-century grave robbers who find a lucrative business providing dead bodies for an Edinburgh medical school.
