Actors Simon Pegg and Isla Fisher have joined forces in the new comedy, Burke And Hare.

The movie is based on the true story of two grave robbers turned murderers, played by Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis.

Isla Fisher, who plays Pegg's love interest, described their characters relationship: "We basically fancy each other but my motives are a little dodgy. I'm trying to get together an all female play of Macbeth and he's just trying to shag me."

The film's characters, William Burke and William Hare, were serial murderers in the 19th Century who killed 17 people and sold their corpses to doctors.

Burke And Hare is released in UK cinemas from October 27.
