Much Ado About Nothing11th July, 2013
Joss Whedon’s fresh take on William Shakespeare’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING has received wide critical acclaim, praised for its humour and “inspired” interpretation of the Bard’s comedic play (Variety). Empire magazine described Whedon and Shakespeare as “a perfect match”.
Using the original text, adapted by Joss Whedon, the story of sparring lovers Beatrice (Amy Acker) and Benedick ( Alexis Denisof) offers a dark, sexy, funny and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING was shot in and around Joss Whedon’s own home in Santa Monica, California, while he was still working on the blockbuster superhero film The Avengers. Co-produced by Whedon’s wife Kai Cole, the film was made with close friends and a sincere love for the classic text.
Joss Whedon’s modern re-telling of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING stars Whedon film and television regulars Amy Acker (‘Angel’, ‘Dollhouse’), Alexis Denisof (‘Buffy’, ‘Angel’, ‘Dollhouse’), Clark Gregg (The Avengers), Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods, ‘Dollhouse’) and Nathan Fillion (‘Buffy’, ‘Firefly’, Serenity).
