Whedon's adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing is a modern version of Shakespeare's classic comedy, the movie was filmed in just 12 days entirely on location in Santa Monica and features a combined cast of Shakespeare vets and others completely new to the form.
Shot in black and white by Jay Hunter (PAPER HEART, "Dollhouse"), the film stars Amy Acker (CABIN IN THE WOODS, "Alias") and Alexis Denisof ("How I Met Your Mother", "Angel") as Beatrice and Benedick, the world's least likely lovers headed for their inevitable tumble into love.
The film was produced by Whedon, line-produced by Nathan Kelly and M. Elizabeth Hughes, and co-produced by Kai Cole and Danny Kaminsky. Whedon most recently directed Marvel's hugely successful film The Avengers. He has also helmed Firefly, Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and many more.
