It's, bewilderingly, a modern-day adaptation of "Much Ado About Nothing," and it stars the usual staple of Whedon actors: Nathan Fillion, Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, the smattering of actors you don't know unless you're invited up into Whedon's clubhouse. (It also has Clark Gregg, Agent Coulson from the Marvel "Avengers" universe, since he must have had a couple seconds just off set.)
There's now an official Web site and a cast list and all sorts of speculation for a movie that we'll bet dollars to donuts never makes it to multiplexes. Someday Joss Whedon is going to Tweet out a link to a flipbook starring Fillion wearing various spaceman costumes and holding a random assortment of farm animals, and we'll have to write a post about that, too. If this is dull for you -- and we'll be honest, it's a little dull for us -- well, hey, look, here's "The Avengers" trailer again! Wee!
