MOVIES : Much Ado About Nothing - Poster for the Shakespearian Whedonverse reunion

As you may have heard, this year, famed sci-fi god Joss Whedon wrote and directed a little film called The Avengers. It went on to have a bit of acclaim among critics and audience alike, therefore making the creator of Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse enter the world of top Hollywood directors. His plans after such a hit ? Going back to TV (by creating the ABC series SHIELD, coming next season) and writing / producing / directing / editing / composing the music for a film adaptation of a Shakespearian play shot in his backyard, Much Ado About Nothing. Given that pattern, the next logical step would be Dr Horrible II - no but seriously, it's great that he's doing these 'smaller' projects.

Much Ado About Nothing (duration : 1h47) is a dramedy shot in black-and-white in Joss Whedon's backyard between October 11 and October 23, 2011.

Anthony Stewart Head (Giles !) was intended to be a part of the film but ultimately Clark Gregg stepped in to replace him. Still, the cast boats lots of actors from the Whedonverse, including :

Amy Acker (Angel, Dollhouse, Cabin in the Woods) as Beatrice.
Alexis Denisof (Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse) as Benedick.
Nathan Fillion (Buffy, Firefly, Dr Horrible) as Dogberry.
Sean Maher (Firefly) as Don John.
Fran Kranz (Dollhouse, Cabin in the Woods) as Claudio.
Reed Diamond (Dollhouse) as Don Pedro.
Clark Gregg (The Avengers, SHIELD) as Leonato.
Tom Lenk (Buffy, Angel, Cabin in the Woods) as Verges.
With also Spencer Treat Clark, Riki Lindhome, Ashely Johnson, Jillian Morgese and Emma Bates.

It will get a limited release June 7, 2013 before going wide two weeks later.

Are you as excited as I am about this opportunity Joss is giving us to see 'Wesley' and 'Fred' together on screen again, with also Mal, Simon, Jonathan and the others in this unexpected setting ?
