Much Ado About Nothing will also be available two weeks prior to the Blu-ray and DVD release with a September 24 Video on Demand premiere date.The film features an all-star cast from many of Whedon's cult favorite projects including Amy Acker (The Cabin in the Woods, TV's "Angel"), Alexis Denisof (TV's "Angel," TV's "How I Met Your Mother"), Reed Diamond (Moneyball, TV's "Franklin & Bash"), Nathan Fillion (TV's "Castle," TV's "Firefly"), Clark Gregg (The Avengers) and Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods).
