Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing to get distribution

After finishing The Avengers, Joss Whedon headed home. But instead of relaxing, basking in the post-Marvel afterglow, the director spent twelve days filming a Shakespeare adaptation in and around his home.  Starring Whedon regulars, NPR called it “marvelously homemade” “but amiably loose in places.” And it looks like it’ll now be getting wider distribution than the film festival circuit.

According to Deadline, Lionsgate, who worked with Whedon on Cabin in the Woods, have picked up the distribution rights for Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing at TIFF ’12. Along with Roadside Attractions, they’ll be distributing the film stateside.

Whedon is “thrilled to be working with my cronies at Lionsgate again, and with The Roadside team. ”

The film doesn’t have a release date set yet, and with its homemade ethos, it may not get much play outside the art theater, but this is definitely one to watch.

    And this is one of the reasons why I’m so glad to live in a big city that’s likely to be screening this.
