Isla Fisher Joins John Landis Horror Comedy Burke and Hare Opposite Tom Wilkinson, Simon Pegg, and Andy Serkis

Isla Fisher to Dig Up Bodies (and Laughs) in Burke and Hare

Isla Fisher better get working on her horror scream. The actress has signed on for Burke and Hare, based on the true story of two of Edinburgh's earliest serial killers/gravediggers who sold victims' bodies to a medical school (for a nice profit, naturally). Oh, and did I mention it's a comedy?

Simon Pegg is playing Burke to Andy Serkis's Hare, and Tom Wilkinson has also recently joined as a school lecturer in need of fresh corpses. Fisher will reportedly serve as Pegg's actress-girlfriend—and no doubt steal a few scenes like she always does.

Fisher and Pegg as an onscreen couple seems like a genius matchup to me. Best of all, the whole thing is being helmed by John Landis. The man obviously knows a thing or two about decaying bodies from serving as the director of Michael Jackson's "Thriller," so I can't wait to see what he does this time around. Sounds like a wicked good time, don't you agree?
