Ok, ok, we know that Joss Whedon‘s indie rom-com Much Ado About Nothing is now playing in theaters, but who cares – we have this pretty cool poster to share, and we’re sure you’re going to love it! Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps, remember? But then again… perhaps love may prevail?
Filmed in just 12 days entirely on location in exotic Santa Monica, the film features a stellar cast of beloved actors – some of them veterans of Shakespearean theater, some completely new to the form.
Those actors are Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, Clark Gregg, Fran Kranz and Reed Diamond.
In case you forgot:
Shot in glorious black and white, the movie revolves around Beatrice and Benedick, the world’s least likely lovers headed for their inevitable tumble into love. The plot of the movie is virtually unchanged from that of Shakespeare’s original play, the only major differences being the modern-day setting, the switching of Conrade’s gender, and expanding Ursula’s role slightly by giving her some of Margaret’s scenes.
As usual – click on the poster to enlarge & stay tuned for more!
