Much Ado About Joss Whedon

A mysterious website announces a new Joss Whedon film... that is already complete.

These are all things you'll find in Shakespeare plays. You may also find them on the internet tonight as the nerd community is abuzz with a mysterious announcement from Joss Whedon and company. A tweet from Nathan Fillion directed people to a website that simply announced completion of a movie called Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Joss Whedon. The cast list is a who's who of Whedon regulars: Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Fillion, Tom Lenk, Clark Gregg and more.

The only other info on the page is that it's 'Based On A Play,' which I assume means the Shakespeare.

My guess? Whedon and his friends were hanging around and decided to shoot a version of Much Ado About Nothing, probably set in the modern day. It might even be a loose adaptation. And possibly even a short. I doubt it's some kind of slick film, especially since Whedon just finished shooting The Avengers; Much Ado About Nothing is likely the kind of thing these folks threw together over a couple of weekends.

With modern technology being what it is, and with a group of friends like that, interesting things can happen. I'm curious to find out more.
