Ealing studios has attracted its fair share of stars past and present, but it's not often you bump into one of them at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Local resident Mark Hurst couldn't believe his eyes when he spotted film director John Landis at his local branch this week.

Landis, has directed many classic comedies including The Blues Brothers, American Werewolf in London and ironically Kentucky Fried Movie.

He has recently been working on Burke and Hare at Ealing studios. Starring Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis this black comedy is expected to be released around the end of October.

Perhaps the southern fried sustenance was a little reminder of home as he reviewed the final cuts?

Read Mark's great account of their meeting here.
