You guys, Much Ado About Nothing is my very favorite Shakespeare play and one of my all-time favorite literary works. And Joss Whedon is awesome (Exhibit A: “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.” Exhibit B: You don’t need one!). So I can only assume that this will be THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER! Granted, the Kenneth Branagh film is wonderful…but this is Joss Whedon doing Shakespeare!! And Nathan Fillion is playing Dogberry!!! I am without words to express my glee.
Frantic Googling has revealed that the movie debuted at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, and apparently Lionsgate will be releasing the movie in North America at some point. If anyone has more information, let me know ASAP, because I definitely need to see this movie!
