Although Shakespeare is not for everyone, Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing is a must-see film with superb aesthetics, a magnificent cast, and perfect comedic timing.
Joss Whedon is one of the most popular talents in Hollywood these days, and also one of the most versatile. Having already won over major audiences with his work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly and Serenity, he then dropped bombshells in the forms of The Cabin in the Woods and The Avengers. Then, at the high point of his exploding Hollywood career, he decides to adapt a Shakespeare play on a miniscule budget? Sporting a cast made up of Joss Whedon’s close friends/ collaborators, is this modern version of Much Ado About Nothing relevant – and funny – enough for his fans?
