Bloody Disgusting has some news, which—quite frankly—sounds bloody brilliant. Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and Doctor Who's David Tennant are set to star as Burke and Hare—a pair of 19th century grave robbers who go into business producing cadavers for a Scottish medical school.

The film will be directed by John Landis who also directed Animal House, The Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf in London, Trading Places, Three Amigos!, Coming to America, and Michael Jackson’s Thriller video! This is his first full-length feature film since 1998’s Susan’s Game.

Check out Under the Radar's recent interview with David Tennant.
