Joss Whedon’s William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing”

You go to bed for a couple of hours, wake up and discover that Joss Whedon’s only managed to deliver a Shakespearian adaptation which he directed in secret.  Oh, and it’s my birthday, too.  Who’d have thunk?

Joss Whedon. Renaissance man, wrangler of Avengers.

Well, I assume that “Much Ado About Nothing” is from the Shakespeare play – it wouldn’t be out of character for Joss to go all meta on us and deliver something with the same name which has no relation to Shakespeare’s tale of young love and connivance.

Full disclosure – it’s my favourite Shakespeare play and Whedon’s one of my favourite living artists.  I think he’s a genius. So bias should be expected.

The website that you need to go to for not many clues at all is MuchAdoTheMovie.com – hey, that’s Fran Krantz! – and check out that cast list.  Fillion! Acker! Denisof!  And some people who don’t appear to have worked with Whedon on a regular basis!
