John Landis' upcoming project 'Burke and Hare' has snagged Simon Pegg to star in the flick that's based on the true story of two 19th century grave robbers who turn to murder when they fall into the highly profitable business of providing cadavers for the medical fraternity in Nineteenth Century Edinburgh.
Dread Central have been chatting to Landis at the Monster-Mania Convention in New Jersey this past weekend who name dropped Pegg.
It'll be great to see Pegg get back into horror following the hugely successful 'Shaun of the Dead' back in 2004 and of course his brief zombiefied appearance in Romero's 'Land of the Dead' the following year.
The news is yet unconfirmed officially but we reckon it's a certainty. You can read more abou the Burke and Hare murders here.
