Joss Whedon Shot "Much Ado About Nothing" While Making "The Avengers"

Posted: October 24th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Joss Whedon Shot "Much Ado About Nothing" While Making "The Avengers"Submit Comment
In an interview with director Joss Whedon, he revealed that while shooting "The Avengers," he was also hard at work on a secret independent film called "Much Ado About Nothing," based on the classic William Shakespeare play of the same name.

He recently wrapped principal photography and has now opened up about the project. The film was shot entirely in black and white in only 12 days and features lots of familiar faces from some of Whedon's popular shows, including "Dollhouse" and "Angel" stars Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof as the unlikely lovers Beatrice and Benedick. Nathan Fillion (Serenity) is Dogberry, Reed Diamond ("Dollhouse") is Don Pedro and Fran Kranz ("Dollhouse") is Claudio. Even "The Avengers" star Clark Gregg has joined the cast as Leonato.

"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," said Whedon, adding that the film will be "completed by early spring and headed for the festival circuit."

Nice, hopefully this take on Shakespeare will be better than that god awful "Romeo & Juliet" from Baz Lurhman.

Now we know what kept Whedon halfway motivated enough to throw together the Avengers movie.

A personal movie project filled with his friends and well established business connections. Not to mention a chance to prove that he's willing to take a stab at a project that a much better Marvel movie director directed years earlier.

...Sounds like someone had a serious hankering to prove something.

And at the very least it gives the Whedonites a clear excuse if the Avenger movie blows serious chunks...

But it does make you wonder just how "secret" this little side project of his was. Because Marvel whether or not the first Avengers movies is successful or not, if they had no idea he was working on this little side personal project at the same time there's little doubt that they'll use it as reason to try to pay him less for his next project that he does for them.

Seems to me that even if The Avengers is a decent film that ppl will just bitch and moan about it anyway coz they just like to hate stuff for the sake of hating stuff.

@Rambo & @vampires_suck - couldn't agree with you more.

@JohnZee - seriously, who gives a f*ck? Roll on The Avengers movie, here's hoping it will be good regardless of who directed it.

Worry about this. Since the Avengers is a big project and this one.... well, just nothing, I hope it didnīt f*ck up doing both things at the same time!!!!!

They loyalty from his former casts still amazes me. they will sign up for almost anything he does. I know certain actors work with certain directors a number of times out of familiarity and such but the relationship Whedon must have with his former casts for them to continually work together is great. From an actor's P.O.V.

@Johnny - that was my first thought upon reading the headline. This guy (next to Steve Jobs) must be the ultimate multi-tasker.

Good news.

I think Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing was a amazing adaption.

I watched it in my English class, I think in Year 8 in my school in Birmigham.

I always wanted a modern day verison of the play because it would work out well.
