The film is a modern version of Shakespeare’s classic comedy set in an upper-class home.

Much Ado About Nothing is released in Ireland on June 14th.
“Much Ado About Nothing” is a modern version of Shakespeare’s classic comedy adapted and directed by Joss Whedon.
Filmed in just 12 days entirely on location in exotic Santa Monica, the film features a stellar cast of beloved (or soon to be beloved) actors – some of them veterans of Shakespearean theater, some completely new to the form. But all dedicated to the idea that this story bears retelling, that this dialogue is as fresh and intoxicating as any being written, and that the joy of working on a passion project surrounded by dear friends, admired colleagues and an atmosphere of unabashed rapture far outweighs their hilariously miniature paychecks.
