It's official! John Landis is back behind the camera for Burke and Hare, and filming has commenced. We all know that this is gonna be good, but things have actually just gotten a bit better with the addition of the great Tim Curry to the cast! Excited yet?
Yet more casting news from Burke and Hare comes our way today as several more stars ready themselves for a some murderous corpse sellin' shenanigans!
A while ago we told you about John Landis and Simon Pegg bringing us a new film based upon the ghoulish real life misadventures of the serial killing, corpse selling duo Burke and Hare. Today a bit more casting news has come to light.
We just got our hands on not one, but two, clips from the Paul Andrew Williams (interview) film The Cottage (DVD review), which is out on DVD right now! The first features one of the wanna-be kidnappers trying to intimidate their hostage, who’s just not having it. The other is the first appearance, to this character at least, of a hideously deformed monstrosity, which makes him scream like a bitch.
Just like our extensive and exhausting (on our side, at least) coverage from last year (read it all right here), we’re compiling as much info as we can for the horror offerings at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, going down in NYC this April 23rd – May 4th!
"Strangers don't fare well in these parts." That's the kind of warning we Americans usually hear with a Southern twang attached, but this time it is oddly more ... British. Yeah, I wasn't sure what to make of that either.
The UK horror/comedy The Cottage is set to open in theaters across the pond on March 14th, 2008. Though no official site has been created for it yet, distributor Pathe Films has put together a pretty cool poster that you can see by clicking on the teaser image to the right.
