Isla Fisher stars in the upcoming comedy Burke & Hare alongside Simon Pegg, Jessica Hynes and Andy Serkis and this is our first Aussie look at her cheeky movie poster! Based on the true story about the famous murders, Isla plays the love interest for Simon Pegg’s character who “may or may not be an accomplice to the murders.”
William Burke (Simon Pegg) and William Hare (Andy Serkis) are scratching out a living in 1820s Edinburgh. After yet another failed business venture, they return to Hare\’s lodging house to find that a tenant has suddenly died on rent day. As the boys decide how to dispose of the body over a drink, they discover that a corpse can fetch a hefty price. Edinburgh is the centre of the medical world and the city\’s doctors are crying out for cadavers for their anatomical demonstrations. Not least, fierce rivals progressive Dr. Knox (Tom Wilkinson) and traditionalist Dr. Monro (Tim Curry). When KNOX is paid a visit by BURKE & HARE with a fresh corpse he urges them to bring him any more â€˜unfortunates\’ they may stumble upon.
