Much Ado About Joss Whedon. {First Official Trailer}

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more.

The pairing one might only dream of has happened:

Whedon plus Shakespeare.

I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a fangirl.

I was always more of a Firefly/Serenity fan than of Buffy and Angel, but really, Joss Whedon is one of my favorite writers/producers/directors of this…umm…ever. Dollhouse was cut down in its prime, and of course, The Avengers was amazing.

So imagine my delight to hear that Joss was taking on one of my favorite Shakespearean comedies!

Also exciting:

1. The film was shot in 12 days at Whedon’s home.

2. He’s using an elegant, minimalist approach in a modern setting (take that, Kenneth Branagh).

3. Nathan Fillion as Dogberry!

4. Amy Acker and Alex Denisof as Beatrice and Benedick.

5. If the rest of the film is anything like the trailer, I will be back the day after it opens to see it again.

You get the popcorn; I’ll bring some candy:
