'Much Ado About Nothing': Joss Whedon's choices in his interpretation
Much Ado About Nothing is a black and white American romantic comedy film adapted for the screen, produced, and directed by Joss Whedon , from William Shakespeare 's play of the same name. To create the film, director Whedon established the production studio Bellwether Pictures. The plot of the film is largely unchanged from that of Shakespeare 's original play. Differences include the modern-day setting, switching Conrade's gender, eliminating several minor roles and consolidating others into Leonato's aide, and expanding Ursula's role by giving her a number of Margaret's scenes. In addition, the film attempts to add background to the relationship between Beatrice and Benedick by showing, in an opening scene, a morning after they apparently slept together.
