Fleeting: Joss Whedon’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing”

For anyone that knows me, you would know that my favorite Shakespeare comedy would be “Much Ado About Nothing” (with “Twelfth Night” being the sentimental second). So when word got around in late 2011 that Joss had completed filming an adaptation of said Shakespeare comedy… let’s just say I got all obsessed about it very very quickly.

Why? Because Joss not only adapted my favorite comedy, but he also brought on board a vast number of actors from his previous projects… and considering how big of a fan I am of the science-fiction / fantasy / comic feel that Joss tends to create… well what do you expect.

That and the fact that I am a MAJOR Nathan Fillion fan (though you probably wouldn’t know it at first glance).

So why am I in such a tizzy? Well because of this:

Now since this film has been hitting the festival circuit and won’t be released in theatres until June.. I have had to saturate my thirst via other avenues…

Nik at Nite was at the Toronto Film Festival and was able to give a blow by blow of everything that happened during the screening and subsequent panel and Q&A… and I must say this just made me love Joss, Clark [Gregg] and Sean [Maher] even more.

This film was also screened at The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals down in Austin, Texas… *drools*

Anyway… Guess this is going to be one of those films that I am going to want to be in a movie theatre for… who’s with me?
