David Tennant and Simon Pegg will be robbing graves

David TennantDavid Tennant and Simon Pegg will star in John Landis' next film Burke and Hare. Tennant will soon be stepping down as the lead character in Doctor Who and while Pegg has mostly been in movies as of late (such as the recent cinematic remake of Star Trek), he is known for co-creating the television cult fave Spaced.

It will be interesting to see them work together since Pegg is a big sci-fi fan. He appeared in the first season of Doctor Who as "The Editor," before Tennant came on board. Sadly, the movie probably has very little science fiction involved since it's about a pair of famous 19th century grave robbers. What do you expect from the man who brought us An American Werewolf in London?

It's also good to hear that director John Landis apparently isn't career-dead either and has just moved shop to England (hopefully only temporarily). Animal House and The Blues Brothers are two of my favorite movies of all time.

I met John Landis at Comic Con this year and got to hold his cane (not a euphemism) while he signed my guidebook. It was soooo cool! American Werewolf in London is my favorite horror movie.
I texted everyone I knew that I met John Landis and practically screamed when some of my friends were like, "Who?"
He's AWESOME!

oh my god. this will be a fantastic movie. granted the two of them could be reading a phone book together and I'd still pay to see it. Love to see that Tennant is getting a good deal of post-Doctor work.
