The Bard returns to the big screen with the release of Joss Whedon’s indie adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. The Avengers director's contemporary take on the Shakespeare classic tells the story of a young couple scheming to set up their perpetually single friends. The low budget adaptation—shot in black and white in 12 days at Whedon’s home in Santa Monica, CA—stars former Angel cast members Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof as Beatrice and Benedick, respectively. The cast also features Nathan Fillion as Dogberry, Fran Kranz as Claudio, Jillian Morgese as Hero, Sean Maher as Don John, Clark Gregg as Leonato and Reed Diamond as Don Pedro. Watch the first trailer for Much Ado About Nothing below. The movie is set to open in select markets on June 7!
