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!
We found out back in July that the Science Channel would be airing a Firefly TV special on titled Browncoats Unite on November 11, which reunites the cast and crew of Joss Whedon’s cult favorite television series.
In honor of the upcoming one-hour special, the Science Channel held a panel on Saturday at New York Comic-Con to premiere some exclusive clips from Browncoats Unite and Firefly stars Jewel Staite (Kaylee Frye) and Sean Maher (Dr. Simon Tam) were in attendance. When the former cast members, whose characters were on the cusp of a beautiful love affair when the series created by Joss Whedon was unexpectedly cancelled, greeted each other lovingly on stage, then shared a champagne toast to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
Nathan Fillion, who played Captain Mal Reynolds on the show, called into the panel, but of course, then came out and surprised everyone. As the audience stood up and screamed with delight, Staite and Maher took turns straddling Fillion – yes, it was a sight to see, check our photos capturing that moment and more from the panel here below.
