If you ever doubted the talent and drive of Joss Whedon, keep in mind that his upcoming film adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing — which is already getting praised by critics all over the place — is just something he threw together for fun on his short bit of downtime after he wrapped on The Avengers. Catherine Shoard at The Guardian calls it "the first great contemporary Shakespeare since Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet" and, better still, the cast is full of Whedon favorites like Wesley Wyndam-Pryce (Alexis Denisof), Fred (Amy Acker) and Mal Reynolds/Captain Hammer/terrifying Caleb (hunkasaurus Nathan Fillion).

Sigh, imagine a life that's just hanging out, drinking wine and making movies at Joss Whedon's house all of the time...

Kenneth Branagh made a funny and charming version in 1993. Even Keanu Reeves couldn't ruin it. And it introduces us to a very young (and different looking) Kate Beckinsale. Michael Keaton is hilarious. Denzel Washington is Denzel Washington. And Branagh and Emma Thompson are radiant and sexy.
