“Much Ado About Nothing” Adaptation By Whedon ’87 Gets Its First Trailer

You’ll have to excuse me, I’m fanboying so hard.

I have a tendency to be able to go on and on about The Hero of Wesleyan, the man they call Joss Whedon ’87. Besides being the school’s 2013 commencement speaker, the Buffy The Vampire Slayer/Angel/Firefly/Dollhouse/Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long-Blog/Cabin in the Woods/The Avengers writer and director also put together his own, modern-day movie adaptation of the play Much Ado About Nothing, by that one famous old British writer.

The film, shot in October 2011 at Whedon’s own house over the course of less than two weeks, is set for a June 7 theater release, but we finally get a taste of what it will look like. It’s shot in mostly black and white, with the trailer set to an upbeat, jazzy tune, and we can see some of the promised all-star cast, many of whom Whedon has put in his other films and shows.

Representatives of the Whedon Army here include Amy Acker (Angel, Dollhouse, Cabin), Alexis Denisof (Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse, The Avengers), Reed Diamond (Dollhouse), Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Buffy, Dr. Horrible’s), Clark Gregg (Avengers), and Fran Kranz (Dollhouse, Cabin), among many others. I’m guessing it’ll be better than the original.
