MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING Trailer Drops and Jonesy Gets a Shakespeare Boner

Damn, I love Shakespeare. His comedies are always so witty and charming. I enjoyed Kenneth Branaugh's version of MUCH ADO from 1993, and now I am stoked about Joss Whedon taking a stab at this story. I had listed this film as one of my most anticipated of this year, and after seeing this trailer, my opinion hasn't changed. In fact, I'm even more excited.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is a complicated tale of love between Beatrice and Benedict, who would rather verbally out spar each other than admit their love to one another. It also follows young Hero and Claudio on their wedding day as complications arise from the villainous Don John.

Check it out!

I love the feel of style Whedon went with. Shakespeare is so great because you can easily create a concept piece, like Baz Lurhmann achieved with ROMEO+JULIET. Whedon brings back a lot of his "regulars" for this small film, and from the looks of it, The Bard and Joss are an awesome mashup.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING will be released June 17, 2013 directed by Joss Whedon and starring Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, and Fran Kranz.
