Joss Whedon is quite clearly trying to challenge Samuel L Jackson for the crown of Busiest Man in Hollywood. Not content with just writing and directing The Avengers – one of the biggest films of the year, and arguably the biggest superhero film of all time – he simultaneously shot an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. And now it’s been revealed by Mad Men actress Abigail Spencer to NYMag.com that she’s joining another Whedon project:
“His next movie, I start that next month. It’s my first time [doing a project with Whedon], but I’ve always wanted to work with him. I’m so excited to do it.
It’s the most romantic film in the history of time. It’s a supernatural romance.”
Look, I’m as much a fan of Whedon as the next man (as long as that next man is a Whedon worshipper), but “most romantic film in the history of time”? Hyperbole much?
