Much Ado About Nothing

Posted on

Most people would want to take a break after directing an epic $220 million superhero flick. But all Joss Whedon had in mind once he wrapped The Avengers was to make another movie, albeit a much smaller one. The director gathered a group of actor friends, including Castle‘s Nathan Fillion and The Avengers‘ Clark Gregg, in his own L.A. house and helmed a black-and-white modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic rom-com. ”Honestly, best vacation I ever took,” says Whedon. ”I was never more relaxed. It’s like a 12-day party, and then there’s art. The sense of achievement as well as relaxation is way better than ‘I got a tan’ — which, by the way, I wouldn’t have gotten anyway.”
