Alexis Denisof and Amy Acker, appearing in Joss Whedon’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, tell View about the delightful fun to be had in performing a timeless script, how brilliant it is to work on a project with great friends, and how talented and visionary a director and creative force Joss Whedon is.
Joss Whedon, the director of Much Ado About Nothing, met up with View at the Glasgow Film Festival to discuss his Shakespeare adaptation (featuring all his actor friends in a brilliant lo-fi interpretation of the Bard’s play), and to share news on Avengers 2, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV series, and nuggets of filmmaking knowledge covering Buffy, writing, directing and making the most of your talent and career while you can.
Dan Stevens, producer and star of British romantic drama Summer in February, tells View about the film, and charms effortlessly with his tales of Cornwall, artists, ale in ancient pubs and the creation of a true love story on film from a novel that he has a very special connection to. This interview does contain some plot spoilers.
Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith, joined by director M. Night Shyamalan, discuss their Sci-Fi action thriller After Earth, and tell View what it’s like balancing parenting with film producing, allowing your son to run up the side of active volcanoes, and how physically challenging action films and Sci-Fi movies can be.
