Lionsgate Picks up Distribution Rights To Joss Whedons Much Ado About Nothing
Joss Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing" has been picked up Lionsgate, according to reports. The studio has acquired the North American distribution rights to the indie film, which played at the Toronto Film Festival last weekend.
"I'm thrilled to be working with my cronies at Lionsgate again, and with The Roadside team," Whedon said. "That they all embrace a Shakespearean romance with the same enthusiasm they had for Cabin in the Woods shows that they're exactly the mad fools we want to be partying - I mean working - with."
The film is a contemporary spin on the classic Shakespear comedy and stars Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, Fran Kranz, Jillian Morgese, Sean Maher, Clark Gregg, and Reed Diamond.
