March 7th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Joss Whedons take on Shakespeares play Much Ado About Nothing has hit the inter-web…

Whedon shot the film at his house in 12 days when he was supposed to be having a break between principal photography and post-production on The Avengers.

The story, a modern-day take on Shakespeare’s romantic comedy drama, focuses on a house party and wedding whereat the lives of two couples intertwine. Young lovers Hero (Jillian Morgese) and Claudio (Fran Kranz) are about to get married, and mischievously convince their warring friends Beatrice (Amy Acker) and Benedict (Alexis Denisof) that they’re secretly in love with one another. But Hero and Claudio are themselves ripped apart by a lie, and much complication and conflict ensues before everyone’s love life is set back on the straight and narrow. Nathan Fillion and Tom Lenk, meanwhile, play foolish local watchmen Dogberry and Verges.

Much Ado About Nothing is due for release on June 14

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
