For those who had not yet heard, back when director Joss Whedon was making that little superhero flick The Avengers, he also made an even smaller movie with a bunch of his Whedonverse friends in only twelve days.
The movie is Much Ado About Nothing, an adaptation of the William Shakespeare classic set in modern times. Whedon made the movie through Bellwether Pictures, a micro-studio Whedon started with Kai Cole that’s dedicated to do-it-yourself style indie narratives for all forms of media.
Now this ultra low budget film has itself a release date to plan for. You can find out when you can see it and check out a full rundown of who’s in the movie and who they’re playing below now!
Much Ado About Nothing, which was acquired by Lionsgate back in September and is set to hit the festival circuit, will be released on June 7, 2013.
Here’s a full list of the cast and who they’re playing in the movie:
— Amy Acker as Beatrice
— Alexis Denisof as Benedick
— Nathan Fillion as Dogberry
— Ashley Johnson as Margaret
— Clark Gregg as Leonato
— Fran Kranz as Claudio
— Riki Lindhome as Conrade
— Sean Maher as Don John
— Spencer Treat Clark as Borachio
— Reed Diamond as Don Pedro
— Tom Lenk as Verges
— Jillian Morgese as Hero
Much Ado About Nothing tells the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick in a modern setting, all while still using the original text.
It’s produced by Whedon, Cole, and co-executive producer Daniel Kaminsky.
