For anyone who was a fan of Edgar Wright's delightful sitcom "Spaced," the thought of Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes (née Stevenson) together on screen again will have you sold on "Burke and Hare" before ever watching the trailer below. Pegg and Andy Serkis play the title characters, who were actual serial killers in Edinburgh in the 1800s who murdered people to sell their corpses to the medical school. This is the first scripted film from director John Landis since 1998's "Susan's Plan," and while I wouldn't say the trailer itself is terribly promising, the talent involved is -- Isla Fisher, Tim Curry, Christopher Lee and Stephen Merchant co-star.

"Burke and Hare" comes out in the UK on October 29th, but does not yet have a U.S. distributor. »
