PostSubject: John Landis' Burke & Hare!!   Thu Feb 04, 2010 10:10 pm

Oh yes!! He's back!! Very Happy Yes folks, John Landis is back directing films!! Very Happy It has been 12 long painful years since his last film, the underrated Blues Brothers 2000 (1998), and he's been quiet since then, he's done alot of TV work and some documentaries. But, he's returning to cinema, and he's come over HERE to make it!! Very Happy Made for Ealing Studios, he's taken the helm of Burke and Hare, a black comedy horror which will see Landis back on top and it has THE BEST CAST OF THE DECADE!! Very Happy

Set in Edinburgh in 1827, it follows two Irish graverobbers. William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis) who run a lucrative little enterprise providing bodies for Edinburgh's medical school!!

Already, it has two excellent leads. Pegg's star is on the rise, and he's come a long way from Spaced and Shaun of the Dead. Now he's working with people like Spielberg and Peter Jackson. Serkis has also worked with Jackson and now Spielberg, and he's also found time for a little fun, like in The Cottage, which is similiar in tone to this. The film will also feature the best cast of them all. Including the great Christopher Lee, John Cleese, Tom Wilkinson, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Nighy, Reece Shearsmith, Bill Bailey, Jessica Hynes, John Woodvine (who worked with Landis on American Werewolf), Tim Curry, Hugh Bonneville and, best of all, the legendary RONNIE CORBETT!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy steve crazydancer steve

It's filming now, and due for release towards the end of this year, and it will be one EVERYONE will go and see. How can you resist a cast that magnificent and grand!? Landis was at the top of his game in the late 1970s/early 1980's with Kentucky Fried Movie (1977), National Lampoon's Animal House (1978), The Blues Brothers (1980), An American Werewolf in London (1981) and Trading Places (1983). His career may have been on the wane going into the 1990's, but he was always game for a comeback film, and this will be it!! Very Happy He said Burke & Hare will be ďa very black romantic comedy in the classic tradition of the Ealing Studios' Kind Hearts And Coronets and The Ladykillers." Could this be the best film of 2010, I think it will!! Very Happy

I've seen it! Very Happy It was (mostly) excellent with lots of good cameos and some great humour!
