likes to be busy but he took this vice to a whole new level in 2011 when he decided to shoot a feature film while on a short break from editing The Avengers
. In his house. In 12 days. With no budget.
The result is Much Ado About Nothing
- an adaptation of Shakespeare's
play which transplants the text to modern California and peppers it modern flourishes while also retaining the wonderful dialogue and silly slapstick which makes the original so memorable.
The film also gave Whedon the chance to work with some familiar faces from his previous movies and TV shows, including Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Clark Gregg, Reed Diamond, Fran Kranz, Sean Mahe
r and the ever entertaining Nathan Fillion
who steals the show as the idiotic Dogberry.
We got the chance to grab the Whedon
on the red carpet for a quick chat, check out the video below.
