The first poster has been released for Joss Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing". Other than the excitement that stems from Whedon's name alone, making a Shakespearean classic in just twelve days, is rather intriguing.
Fran Kranz, who plays Claudio in the film, is featured on the poster. Actor Alexis Denisof, who plays Benedick, was asked about the new poster and said the following:
"I love this poster. I think the image really captures the spirit of this movie. It's amusing and unique and eye-catching. I think it was a good image to choose. This image of Fran [Kranz] in the pool with the snorkel mask and a martini glass just sums up the quirky, fun easiness this movie has."
Denisof goes on to discuss the scene that is featured in the poster and one-sheet, where Claudio gets fooled by the antagonists:
"There's a very well-known scene about halfway into the film in which Claudio is approached by the bad guys, and he's fooled into believing something that isn't true. So this image is taken from that scene, and I don't think that that scene has ever been placed in a swimming pool. I don't think it's ever been shot or directed or acted in the way that it is in our movie, and I think it's fantastic. It's one of many scenes that people will be surprised and excited at Joss' interpretation."
