Joss Whedon's modern re-telling of Much Ado About Nothing stars Whedon film and television regulars Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Clark Gregg, Fran Kranz and Nathan Fillion. 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.
Leonato, the governor of Messina, is visited by his friend Don Pedro, who is returning from a victorious campaign against his rebellious brother Don John. Accompanying Don Pedro are two of his officers: Benedick and Claudio. Claudio falls for Leonato's daughter Hero, while Benedick verbally spars with Beatrice, the governor's niece. A series of comic and tragic events looks like it may keep the two couples from truly finding happiness … but then again, perhaps love will indeed prevail in the end?
