Joss Whedon fans waiting for “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, here’s something to tide you over. Back at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, Indiewire spoke to Whedon about his independent production company, Bellwether, and its first completed feature, his adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.” Whedon mentioned that Bellwether started another feature before “Much Ado,” and it’s finally premiering at Tribeca Film Festival.
“In Your Eyes,” a science-fiction romance, stars Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David as two people who can feel what the other is feeling despite not knowing each other and living on opposite sides of the country. Written by Whedon and directed by Brin Hill, it sounds like an ambitious, unusual love story, and Entertainment Weekly has released the first three minutes of the film online.
The film establishes its conceit quickly and succinctly, showing a connection between the characters that reaches all the way back to childhood. Count us as intrigued.
