Joss Whedon found time to make a Shakespeare movie?

Nathan Fillion just tweeted a link to, which announces the conclusion of principal photography on Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing, an adaptation of the Shakespeare play. Is this a prank? A short film? Or did Whedon really find time to film another movie in the midst of working on The Avengers? The cast list includes Whedon stalwarts like Amy Acker, Fran Krantz, Tom Lenk and Sean Maher, plus Fillion himself. Is this going to be a trippy, surreal and possibly other-worldly take on Much Ado? The single image certainly gives us hope. [via Whedonesque]
