Joss Whedon is a Hollywood director and writer who has tried his hand at just about every genre from paranormal teen action in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" to superhero adventure in "The Avengers" to horror-comedy in "Cabin in the Woods." He even co-directed a documentary called "Comic-Con: Episode 4." And of course, he was nominated for an Oscar for co-writing "Toy Story."
But his newest movie might be the biggest jump in genres yet. It's an adaptation of William Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing."
The Takeaway's culture producer and Movie Date co-host Kristen Meinzer sat down with Joss to talk about the film and why he chose the romantic comedy as his first big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare.
