Burke And Hare

Another week, another exciting project for David!
John Landis has confirmed whilst attending the Spooky Empire convention in Orlando that he has signed David to play opposite the equally fabulous Mr Simon Pegg (pictured with David above) in his new movie about the legendary body snatchers Burke And Hare.
The two will play Irish immigrants William Burke and William Hare, who, it was claimed, murdered 17 victims between 1827 and 1828 and sold their victims' corpses to the Edinburgh Medical College for students to practice dissection.

The screenplay was penned by Nick Moorcroft and Piers Ashworth and filming will take place at the Ealing Studios with pre production starting in November 2009.
