Joss Whedon does Shakespeare?

Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Dollhouse creator Joss Whedon apparently managed to be sneaky and just finished principle photography with a bunch of his friends on Much Ado About Nothing.

Included in the cast are several famous Whedon alums, including Nathan Fillion, Sean Maher, Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof.

And that’s about all we know. But if Whedon’s doing Shakespeare? This could be awesome.

  1. Or…it could really, really suck. (And, block of wood that is Keanu Reeves aside, it’s going to be hard to make a better version for film than the Brannagh.)

    I’m kind of curious whether that cast list is alphabetical or implies billing (and whether if so he’d consider Beatrice/Benedick or Claudio/Hero the top couple, the former being the standard modern take, the latter the period-appropriate one…)
