Joss Whedon's "Much Ado about Nothing"

Apparently Joss Whedon had a two-month mandatory holiday after he directed the Avengers movie, all $220 million of it. Turns out that he has hosted Shakespeare readings in his home, just for fun. Decided to make a movie of Much Ado about Nothing. He made it in his home, in black and white, with a handheld camera, in twelve days, with his friends (talented friends, though, that he's worked with before) as the actors. Needless to say, it cost almost nothing. Based on this trailer, I must see it.
Opens in Vancouver on June 21.

While I'm on the subject of Joss Whedon, I became a strong fan when I saw this political ad for Mitt Romney during the last American election.
