Much Ado About Nothing

"Much Ado About Nothing" is a modern version of Shakespeare's classic comedy adapted and directed by Joss Whedon.

Filmed in just 12 days entirely on location in exotic Santa Monica, the film features a stellar cast of beloved (or soon to be beloved) actors - some of them veterans of Shakespearean theater, some completely new to the form. But all dedicated to the idea that this story bears retelling, that this dialogue is as fresh and intoxicating as any being written, and that the joy of working on a passion project surrounded by dear friends, admired colleagues and an atmosphere of unabashed rapture far outweighs their hilariously miniature paychecks.

Shot in glorious black and white by Jay Hunter ("Paper Heart," "Dollhouse"), the film stars Amy Acker ("Cabin in the Woods," "Alias") and Alexis Denisof ("How I Met Your Mother," "Angel") as Beatrice and Benedick, the world's least likely lovers headed for their inevitable tumble into love. As Joss Whedon puts it: "The text is to me a deconstruction of the idea of love, which is ironic, since the entire production is a love letter - to the text, to the cast, even to the house it's shot in." The supporting cast includes Nathan Fillion ("Castle," "Waitress") as Dogberry, Clark Gregg ("Avengers," "Iron Man") as Leonato, Fran Kranz ("Cabin in the Woods," "Dollhouse") as Claudio and Reed Diamond ("Franklin & Bash," "Moneyball") as Don Pedro.
