The ultimate nerd dream team—Joss Whedon and William Shakespeare—have joined forces. Much Ado About Nothing will chivalrously amble into theaters this Friday, with veteran Whedonites Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof taking on the roles of blackbelt-level bickerers Beatrice and Benedick (alliterative heaven!).
