'Avengers' director Joss Whedon's next film to feature 'Mad Men's' Abigail Spencer
Joss Whedon is certainly keeping busy these days. His take on Marvel's "The Avengers" arrives in theaters in May, while the Whedon-produced "Cabin in the Woods" precedes in April, and his micro-budget contemporary Shakespeare adaptation "Much Ado About Nothing" will likely also hit theaters sometime in 2012.
Now, "Mad Men" co-star Abigail Spencer is in negotiations to star in yet another new Whedon production, the secretive "supernatural romance" known as "In Your Eyes," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Whedon is writing and producing while Brin Hill ("Planet B-Boy") is directing the film. Whedon's micro-studio Bellwether Pictures specializes in quick, cheap films ("Much Ado" was filmed in only 12 days, partially in Whedon's own home).
Specncer will soon be seen in Curtis Hanson's "Men and Mavericks," opposite Gerard Butler, and in Sam Raimi's "Oz: The Great and Powerful," which stars James Franco as the title character.
