Sunscreen-obsessed singer-turned-director Baz Luhrmann isn’t the only one with a glitzy, modern retelling of a classic tale on the way. When he wasn’t grossing over a billion dollars at the box office for the Avengers or spooking us silly with Cabin in the Woods, Joss Whedon was filming an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s original rom-com Much Ado About Nothing in his backyard with an all-star Whedonverse cast including Nathan Fillion, Amy Acker, Clark Gregg, Alexis Denisof, Franz Kranz, and pretty much everyone else you’d expect. And the craziest part? Nick Fury comes out at the end to recruit Beatrice and Benedick for the Avengers’ Old English Initiative.
