Joss Whedon announced at a panel at last week’s Comic-Con that he has composed his first full film score for the independent production Much Ado About Nothing. The film written and directed by Whedon is a modern version of Shakespeare’s classic comedy and stars Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof (Angel) as Beatrice and Benedick, the world’s least likely lovers headed for their inevitable tumble into love. Nathan Fillion (Castle, Serenity), Clark Gregg (The Avengers), Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods, Dollhouse), Reed Diamond (Moneyball), Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Sean Maher (Firefly) are co-starring in the Bellwether Pictures production. Whedon is also producing the project and Kai Cole and Danny Kaminsky are co-producing. Much Ado About Nothing recently completed production and is expected to premiere at a film festival soon.
