Joss Whedon Films Movie in Secret

No, seriously!

Joss, along with several of his regular actors, has filmed his own adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing.

The cast includes a host of Whedonverse alums, including Fillion (Firefly, Buffy, and Dr. Horrible) as Dogberry, Amy Acker (Angel and Dollhouse) as Beatrice, Alexis Denisof (Buffy, Angel, and Dollhouse) as Benedick, Sean Maher (Firefly) as Don John, Reed Diamond (Dollhouse) as Don Pedro, Tom Lenk (Buffy) as Verges, and Fran Kranz (Dollhouse and The Cabin in the Woods) as Claudio, as well as Clark Gregg, a.k.a. Agent Coulson from Iron Man, Thor, and The Avengers as Leonarto.

Also in the cast is Spencer Treat Clark (Gladiator) as Borachio, Riki Lindhome (The Last House on the Left) as Conrade, Ashley Johnson (The Help) as Margaret, Emma Bates as Ursula, Nick Kocher as First Watchman, Brian McElhaney (Arthur) as Second Watchman, Joshua Zar as Leonato’s aide, Paul M. Meston as Friar Francis, Romy Rosemont (Glee) as the Sexton, and Jillian Morgese as Hero.
I didn't see that coming, but I'm glad it did. Can't wait for this to be released!

Yeah, this is an interesting turn-up for the books. How and when did he fit this in round his Avengers schedule?!

Maybe he took inspiration from a certain Angel episode and had someone extract his sleep. According to the article it was filmed during post-production on Avengers.

Hopefully, this one won't be another Cabin In The Woods.

All the Whedonverse actors on Twitter announced it yesterday, and I am intrigued as hell. I can't wait to learn more!

Re: Joss Whedon Films Movie in Secret

The press release (linked in the article) says filming is done, and post production should be done in the Spring, then it will be sent out to film festivals.

Might have to see if I can get my hands on a copy to show during the film festival here in Omaha in July ...

Joss must be bending space and time like the article cited mentions. How one films a movie in secret in the age of the internet is beyond me.

Damn impressive that no word of this had leaked out...

I also somehow managed to miss any previous mention of the webseries with Warren Ellis that was listed in the article, so now I'm doubly excited for new Whedon projects.

Now, where the hell is that Comic-Con documentary he made with Morgan Spurlock?

Considering several commentaries he's done reference Shakespeare reads at his house, I'm glad to see something done for public consumption. I'm guessing this will be something like Vanya on 42nd Street. Low budget art house circuit film shot on the fly, and that'll be fine by me.

Re: Joss Whedon Films Movie in Secret

I'll have to keep an eye out and see if it ever makes it to a theater in Philadelphia before the inevitable DVD release. I love Much Ado, and the cast lineup looks great.

Re: Joss Whedon Films Movie in Secret

If this is indeed true then I'm very excited because Much Ado About Nothing is my favourite Shakespeare play.

Re: Joss Whedon Films Movie in Secret

Not the biggest Shakespeare fan ever, but that cast, hell yeah I'd watch it.


Also, I am pretty sure Joss Whedon was cloned a long time ago, and there are two, if not more, of him.


I always thinks its amazing how in the 2002-03 TV season, he juggled three shows at once. And not just managing one and simply signing off on the other two. In that first half of the season before Firefly ended, he wrote and co-directed the first Buffy episode, Lessons, wrote part of Conversations with Dead People, wrote & directed the Angel ep Spin The Bottle, wrote or co-wrote five Firefly episodes, and directed three of them. Not bad really

good question, seriously good question, Avengers cant go a week without new set pictures, often featuring minor plot points appearing on the web, and Joss some how films a whole movie in secret?

Re: Joss Whedon Films Movie in Secret

^ Apparently, principal photography on The Avengers concluded in September and Much Ado About Nothing followed afterwards. If they rehearsed it well enough beforehand, maybe not very much time was needed to get it in the can.
