Much Ado About Nothing

Fans of The Avengers might be in love with Joss Whedon, but not all of that crowd is going to follow the director to his most recent film, a black and white, contemporary retelling of William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. Whedon does bring familiar faces like Nathan Fillion and Clark Gregg along for the ride in addition to Tom Lenk, Ashley Johnson, Reed Diamond, Riki Lindhome and Sean Maher.  Personally, I'm interested in seeing a film from Whedon with Shakespearean verse as the dialogue as opposed to his own writing. It seems a bit pretentious, but our curiosity is certainly piqued. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing originally from Yahoo:

Joss Whedon directs this modern retelling of William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, the tale of two pairs of lovers with different takes on romance and a way with words. A series of comic and tragic events continue to keep the two couples from truly finding happiness, but then again perhaps love may prevail. Clark Gregg, Tom Lenk, Ashley Johnson, Reed Diamond, Riki Lindhome, Sean Maher and Nathan Fillion all star in the film which played at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, plays the 2013 South by Southwest Film Festival this month, and hits limited theaters this summer on June 7th. Good?

    This movie is going to be spectacular. Joss just had his friends over and they made it for fun over something like 12 days in his own house. It's a passion project, nothing more, and it looks amazing.
  • It looks unusual, quirky, and fun...I'm up for it.

    I got to see this at TIFF and it was amazing! I laughed so hard throughout the entire thing.
  • Aesthetically it's definitely a step in the right direction, but I still get TV movie vibes from this trailer. Maybe it has to do with the way it was cut or something.
  • I saw this at the Dublin Film Festival and can honestly say it's fantastic. It's a lot more 'Whedon' than you'd expect and a very, very accessible Shakespeare adaptation. A really lovely film.
