Fawlty Towers star John Cleese is set for a role in a new film about Burke and Hare.

The Monty Python funnyman, 70, will play an Edinburgh University medic who bought corpses from the murderous pair.

He joins Star Trek's Simon Pegg, 39, and Doctor Who David Tennant, 38, who have been lined up to play William Burke and William Hare.
