Much Ado About Nothing has been purchased at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Avengers director Joss Whedon's take on the classic Shakespeare comedy has been purchased for distribution in North America by Lionsgate and its sister firm Roadside Attractions.

"I'm thrilled to be working with my cronies at Lionsgate again, and with The Roadside team," said Whedon in a statement.

"That they all embrace a Shakespearean romance with the same enthusiasm they had for Cabin in the Woods shows that they're exactly the mad fools we want to be partying - I mean working - with."

Much Ado About Nothing was filmed in black and white on a small budget at Whedon's Los Angeles home, and features Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillion, Fran Kranz, Jillian Morgese, Sean Maher, Clark Gregg and Reed Diamond.

Lionsgate and Roadside have also recently bought the rights to Kristen Wiig's Imogene and Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo's comedy Thanks For Sharing.
