Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing To Be Released Next Summer
It's far from a controversial statement to say that Joss Whedon should be crowned King of 2012. Not only did the writer/director deliver us The Avengers, one of the best superhero movies of all time that also happens to be the third most successful film in box office history, he also gave us The Cabin in the Woods, an absolutely amazing, inventive horror movie that was an under-seen gem, and announced that he would be working as a consultant with Marvel Studios for the next three years (a deal that also has him developing a S.H.I.E.L.D. television series and set to script and helm The Avengers 2). And the best news yet? We'll get to see his next feature directorial effort next summer.
Whedon's adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing, which premiered at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, will be getting released into five markets on June 7, 2013 before getting a wider expansion on June 21st. The film, which is being distributed by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions, is a modern day update of Shakespeare's play, and was actually entirely shot at Whedon's home over the course of 12 days. The awesome cast is filled with both Whedon regulars and newcomers, including Amy Acker, Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, Tom Lenk, Fran Kranz, Sean Maher, Alexis Denisof and Riki Lindhome. The project will have some healthy competition when it enters more theaters at the end of June, as it will be facing off against both Monsters University and World War Z.
Our own Katey Rich actually got to see the film in September and you can read her full review HERE.
