Much Ado About Nothing

Sharmill Films is thrilled to announce its latest acquisition, Joss Whedon’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s celebrated play MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The film is set for release later in 2013.

 Joss Whedon’s (The Avengers, ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, Cabin in the Woods, Toy Story) acclaimed modern re-telling of the Bard’s comedic play stars Whedon film and television regulars Amy Acker (‘Buffy’, ‘Angel’), Alexis Denisof (‘Buffy’, ‘Angel’), Clark Gregg (The Avengers), Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods) and Nathan Fillion (‘Buffy’, ‘Firefly’, Serenity).

 Using the original text, adapted by Joss Whedon, the story of sparring lovers Beatrice (Acker) and Benedick (Denisof) offers a dark, sexy, funny and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.

 Much Ado About Nothing was shot in and around Joss Whedon’s own home in Santa Monica, California, while he was still working on the blockbuster superhero film The Avengers. Co-produced by Whedon’s wife Kai Cole, the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The Australian theatrical release date will be announced soon.

The last major film version of Much Ado About Nothing was actor/director Kenneth Branagh’s large scale production 20 years ago starring Branagh and Emma Thompson.

Whedon’s fresh take on the play has received rave reviews and sold-out festival screenings overseas. Trailers for the film have gone viral online as fans of Whedon’s work and Shakespeare alike anticipate the cinema release.

Dave Griffiths’s ‘The Avengers’ Review:

As far as movies go Avengers comes, sees and conquers! Nothing more needs to be said… well actually it does because this is a review! While The Avengers isn’t a cinematic masterpiece like Dark Knight it is certainly more than just your average action flick, due largely to the fact that screenwriter/director Joss Whedon (TV’S Glee & Dollhouse) gets everything (yes everything!!!) absolutely right. It is seriously hard to fault this film.

Using characters from the Marvel Comics vault The Avengers sees Loki (Tom Hiddleston – War Horse, The Deep Blue Sea) sets out on a plan that will see the whole of Earth bow down before him. And his plan gets off to a stellar beginning when he ‘forces’ Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner – Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, The Town) and Professor Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard – The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Melancholia) to work for him.

This forces Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson – Meeting Evil, The Samaritan) to call together Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson – We Bought A Zoo, Iron Man 2), Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jnr. – Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, Due Date), Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans – What’s Your Number, Captain America: The First Avenger) and Bruce Banner/The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo – Margaret, Date Night) in a bid to stop him. And when Thor (Chris Hemsworth – The Cabin In The Woods, Thor) shows up The Avengers are finally all together.

The story may not sound like much but Whedon really has created an exceptional script. The film may be a little hard for those who have not seen the previous films in the series to comprehend, but Whendon keeps the story following well, drops some suspense when it’s needed and captures the characters so well that comic book fans will be beside themselves with joy. Given that Whedon has also written and directed some amazing fight scenes, Iron Man vs Thor vs Captain America comes straight to mind, this film is certain to be nirvana for anyone who frequents shops like Alternate Worlds or Minotaur.

Whedon’s script captures the characters so well you may even find yourself warming to The Hulk, a character that has been at times hard to connect with in previous films. And as was the way with Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly Whedon has created some one liners of pure wit. Such is Whedon’s ability as a screenwriter he also incorporates some genuinely funny moments into The Avengers without ever having it seem out of place.

The one thing that does stand out in The Avengers is the acting of Robert Downey Jnr. He is head and shoulders above the rest of the cast… he seriously seems to morph into Tony Stark. Cudos must also be paid to Mark Ruffalo who puts in a fine effort and Chris Evans who has really stepped up his abilities since Captain America. Fans will also be happy to know that Gwyneth Paltrow (Contagion, Country Strong) stops by to portray Pepper Potts, but sadly Natalie Portman does not.

The Avengers is epic in every form of the word. Whedon is edgy with his directing style, there is some brilliant cinematography and the CGI (even of The Hulk) is out of this world. Add all that to a script that reminds us what a genius Joss Whedon is and you are left with a film that raises the comic book/action genre bar just that little bit higher. A must see on the big screen!
