Joss Whedon's <i>Much Ado About Nothing</i> set for June 7th, 2013 release dateMuch Ado About Nothing might very well hold true to its title. It's a small black and white updated adaptation of William Shakespeare's ageless play, shot on the cheap over the course of a few days. It probably wouldn't be getting much attention at all if it's director, Joss Whedon, hadn't pulled off the mean feat of Marvel's The Avengers, making it the highest grossing movie of the year.

Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate are jointly releasing the drama on June 7th, 2013, a summer weekend usually reserved for big budget blockbusters. This just goes to prove the weight Joss Whedon's name carries at this moment in time.

The film is opening in five theaters on June 7th, where it will have to contend with Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith in M. Night Shyamalan's After Earth. It will then expand throughout the country on June 21st, opening opposite World War Z and Monsters University.
