This new comedy (inspired by Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing) follows Hollywood sweethearts Beatrice, Benedick, Hero, and Claudio as they try to balance life and love under the eye of the tabloids, while press agents and rivalrous siblings Pedro and Joanna aren’t afraid to fight dirty for control of their father’s company. Romance, avarice, betrayal – throw a sex tape and a live band (!) into the mix and you’ve got all the ingredients for a good old fashioned Hollywood romance!
