Joss Whedon Secretly Made a Movie of Much Ado About Nothing

Joss Whedon, secret keeper.

Joss Whedon just wrapped principal photography on yet another film, this time some kind of adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing that no one outside of production seems to know he was even working on. Secrets! Nathan Fillion and several other people listed as part of the cast and crew all tweeted links to the movie's apparent site, and Fillion said that the project is "real. Very. Very. Real." Costume designer Shawna Trpcic says Fillion is playing Dogberry, actress Emma Bates says she's playing Ursula, and Whedon's rabid fan base is playing the part of a buzz-building PR firm.
