Jason Momoa, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot Assemble for ‘Justice League’ Hollywood Premiere

Jason Momoa, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot Assemble for ‘Justice League’ Hollywood Premiere
The inaugural assembly of the Justice League at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater Monday night represented a triumph for the makers of DC’s latest film, which endured family tragedy, extensive reshoots, and heightened expectations by coming on the heels of “Wonder Woman,” this past summer’s massive hit from the studio.

Veteran producer Chuck Roven, however, said despite all the challenges, the film came together well. He said early response to the film has been encouraging.

“A lot of the movie – a huge, huge portion of the movie was dictated before (director) Zack (Snyder) had to leave the film for his personal family tragedy,” Roven said on the red carpet. “The DNA of the movie was already set.”

Justice League,” first conceived about a decade ago, faced a long road, including several years in development, before arriving to its premiere. Snyder stepped away during post-production in May to deal with the death of his daughter. To finish

Fund This Film: Make a ‘Deal’ With Joss Whedon’s Assistant

One might imagine that it wouldn’t be hard for someone with proximity to one of Hollywood’s most newly profitable filmmakers to get some money to make a short film. A simple phone call to a few friends from the red carpet and you’ve got more than you need. That sort of logic shows a fundamental lack of understanding about how this business works. Just because someone is Joss Whedon’s assistant and co-producer on Much Ado About Nothing, it doesn’t mean people are going to line up to throw cash at their first attempt to become a filmmaker. But after you hear this pitch from newcomer (and red carpet photo bomber) Daniel Kaminsky, you might throw a little money at him. Because everybody has a dream, and this one sounds a little twisted. The project, called The Deal, would be Kaminsky’s directorial debut — it’s a short he wants to make with

Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing Gets Release Date

These Shakespeare update films usually do nothing for me at all. While I have a certain fondness for one of them, mostly they are the work of people who think they are far more clever than they are, and the result is a kind of irritatingly smug ego-effort, rather than an attempt at broadening appreciation of The Bard.

The negatives involved with these works don’t seem like the sort of thing Joss Whedon is liable to be guilty of, and good or bad, he’s just the guy to get truly massive numbers of people to perhaps scratch their chin while walking out of the theater, and muse, “Shakespeare you say?”

A curious effort in more ways than one, Much Ado About Nothing was shot in under two weeks, and without changing the text. It’s sure to be an interesting ride watching the response as we near this film’s release,
