While shooting "The Avengers," director Joss Whedon was also working on a secret independent film called "Much Ado About Nothing," based on the classic William Shakespeare play of the same name.
Now that Whedon is out there promoting "The Avengers," he's also talking about his new low-budget movie, which was shot entirely in black and white in only twelve days at his house. And now, CBS has the first footage. Check it out below.
"Much Ado About Nothing" is written and directed by Whedon, and stars Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, Sean Maher, Alexis Denisof, Fran Kranz, Amy Acker, Riki Lindhome, and Jillian Morgese. There's currently no distributor on board.
Well what can you expect? If you have the chance to make your work profitable by having a big hit and sh*tty film, and you can make the first one be attracted, so the sh*tty one can look awesome, just go ahead!!!!!!

Must be nice to have that kind of equipment laying around to make a film in a week and a half.
Just saw Cabin in the woods by the way. I REALLY ENJOYED IT. It was one of those movies where I kpet thinking, "oh if they take it in this direction it would be awesome but they probably won't cause i would have seen more weird sh*t in the trailers." and nex thing you know it's all going just the way i was hoping it would. I think it's a shame that Goddard (writer/director) isn't getting much credit. It's all swallowed up by whedon's producer image. But hey whatever brings the people in... if only it had worked. Wish more people would see that movie. The previews were pretty much composed of shots from the first forty minutes. Kudos to the studio for not giving away the big fun stuff. Highly recommended.
