From Marvel comics to Shakespeare, Joss Whedon appears to have another hit. This summer his adaptation of the classic Much Ado About Nothing will go into wide release, and early word is that its really good. Watch the trailer to see for yourself.
The last major adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing was in 1993, directed by Kenneth Branagh. In a time when we are seeing movies rebooted and re-adapted within just a few years, I suppose 20 years is long enough that audiences can handle another take on the beloved play.
The film has a diverse cast, including some who have worked with Whedon, including Nathan Fillion as Dogberry, and Alexis Denisof as Benedick. The film also stars Amy Acker as Beatrice, Clark Gregg as Leonato, Reed Diamond as Don Pedro, Fran Kranz as Claudio, Sean Maher as Don John, Spencer Treat Clark as Borachio, Riki Lindhome as Conrade, Ashley Johnson as Margaret, Tom Lenk as Verges, Romy Rosemont as the Sexton, and Jillian Morgese, as Hero.
