Joss Whedon - "Much Ado About Nothing" Movie - Sxsw.com Interview

Saturday 23 February 2013, by Webmaster

Tell us a little about your film.

It’s Much Ado About Nothing, the original text in a modern setting. It’s a classic Shakespearean dramedy, with a bit of a noir edge.

Why did you start making films?

Why on earth would I do anything else?

Have you been to SXSW before? What are you most looking forward to?

I came last year for The Cabin in the Woods and had a great time. My tip is, try to squeeze in a day where you don’t have to shill for your film so you can really enjoy the fest. And see something small and weird, that you wouldn’t see anywhere else. Hey, MY movie’s small and weird! Super total hint!

Tell us a random fact (or two!) that would help our attendees get a better idea of who you are.

I am revered throughout the film world for my punch up on Waterworld.

I look very much like Channing Tatum, thanks to strenuous hours of photoshop.

I don’t have any pets, but if I did, I’m pretty sure they would eventually rebel and make ME their pet in some science-fictiony way.

If I can use the word "viscera" in a sentence, get ready to hear a use of the word "viscera"!

I think movies are stupid.
