Joss Whedon Brings Shakespeare Home in 'Much Ado About Nothing' Trailer

Director cast friends in adaptation he filmed at his own house

By |

Joss Whedon's latest project isn't a brilliantly self-aware horror flick or the sequel to last year's superhero blockbuster – rather, the writer and director is set to release his adaptation of the William Shakespeare classic Much Ado About Nothing. Now you can check out the first trailer for the film, which was made on a shoestring budget, shot at Whedon's own home and stars his friends like Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, Reed Diamond and Clark Gregg. Shot in black-and-white and set to an up-tempo jazz tune, the trailer is packed with extravagant parties, budding love and witticisms that sound truly Whedon-esque – even if they were written by the Bard.
