First pics of Burke and Hare

See Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis on set


John Landis' return to comedy-horror is looking set to be one of the highlights of 2010.

Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis star as the titular 19th-Century corpse-sellers. They're joined by a cracking cast including Tom Wilkinson, Christopher Lee and John Cleese.

Pegg's fellow-Spaced alumni Jessica Hynes and Bill Bailey are also involved.

The first pics of Pegg and Serkis have hit the web, and the guys are certainly looking the part;

The film's based on the true story of William Burke and William Hare. They turned to murder to take advantage of doctors' demands for corpses to experiment on.

We're expecting some big laughs to go with the grue, though.
