David Tennant has been cast alongside Simon Pegg in Burke and Hare. The film's director John Landis made the announcement over the weekend at the Spooky Empire convention in Orlando, Florida.
Burke and Hare focuses on William Burke and William Hare, a pair of serial killers who sold the corpses of their victims to Edinburgh Medical College in the late 1820s. David will play William Hare. Ewan McGregor had once been rumored to be attached to the film, which is a remake of sorts, but it looks like it will finally get made.
