‘The Avengers’ Joss Whedon announces ‘metaphysical love story’

The cult hero has written the script for 'In Your Eyes'

Joss Whedon has announced another new film from his new micro-studio Bellweather Pictures.

The Avengers director and Buffy creator recently surprised fans by revealing that he had completed an adaptation of Shakespeare play Much Ado About Nothing in secret.

Now, the prolific film-maker has announced plans for romance In Your Eyes, according to Deadline. The film is apparently a metaphysical love story about two completely different individuals who are deeply connected in a way that neither can understand.

Whedon wrote the script, which will be directed by Brin Hill. He said: “When I wrote In Your Eyes, I didn’t have the wherewithal (or the moxie) to make it without an established production house.

I believe, as I did then, that it’s a pretty timeless romance, and now, with the creation of Bellweather Pictures (and Brin Hill’s elegant, passionate take on the piece), I have the opportunity to prove it (I also have a 37% increase in moxie). I love this team and I can’t wait to see them bring In Your Eyes to life.

In Your Eyes is due to begin shooting in February next year. You can watch a teaser trailer for The Avengers below.
