Since Joss Whedon directed The Avengers this summer to great fanfare, he has now been welcome as a solid action/big budget director. However, that doesn't mean that he will stop making charming smaller films. And, wow, does it look like he directs the shit out of this movie.
I love all of the interesting choices including the black and white, and the sparsely colored frames. It also looks like an incredibly interesting and modern take on Shakespeare and as many directors have struggled to do that right, I am excited to see if he can. Oh, and it wouldn't be a true Joss Whedon movie without Nathan Fillion, so its nice to see his face.
Much Ado About Nothing has been making its rounds on the festival circuit and will open at SXSW (in case you were wondering, yes it is killing me to not be in Austin this week.) It will be released in theaters this summer.
