The trailer for Joss Whedon‘s Shakespeare adaptation “Much Ado About Nothing” has finally arrived, and it is a Whedonite’s dream. Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof made a fantastic match as leads Beatrice and Benedick, and that can be proven in this new teaser.
“Much Ado About Nothing” made its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in 2012 and earned positive reviews for its contemporary take on the Shakespearean classic. But fans of Whedon’s work will appreciate the fact that he got together a group of his closest friends and frequent collaborators to make the film when he was supposed to instead be going on vacation to Italy with his wife Kai Cole. That’s why you’ll see people like “Firefly’s” Nathan Fillion and Sean Maher, “Dollhouse’s” Fran Kranz and “The Avengers'” Clark Gregg in the trailer for this movie.
Slated for a June 7 release, “Much Ado About Nothing” was adapted, directed and produced by Whedon. “This is the best vacation I’ve ever taken. I mean, yes, it was super hard, it was a ton of work … but I’ve never been so well rested and so well fed as I have on this movie,” Whedon told Entertainment Weekly in October 2011.
