Sigh No More, Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing Coming To America
By Alex Cranz
Joss Whedon was bored, drowning in famous friends who look great on camera and are also amazing, and wanting to make a microbudget Shakespeare adaptation.
And so his black and white adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing was born.
But wait! Just because he makes a film and he’s Joss Whedon, the current king of everything good, doesn’t mean he can just make a movie and it will magically appear in theaters (though it should). First he has to show it off at a film festival. Like maybe Toronto International Film Festival. Then he has to hope someone who can make movies magically appear in theaters (like a distributor) buys it.
And that’s just happened. Lionsgate, who also distributed his exception Cabin in the Woods has picked up the American distribution rights for Much Ado About Nothing. Which means by the end of the year we’ll be watching Fred and Wesley make out while Mal Reynolds investigates crimes.
It. Is. Going. To. Be. Awesome.
