Joss Whedon prepping metaphysical romance ‘In Your Eyes’


Fresh off The Avengers and an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Joss Whedon has lined up a ‘metaphysical love story’, entitled In Your Eyes, for release under the banner of his recently formed Bellweather Pictures. Although he won’t direct – responsibilities in that department have been handed over to Ball Don’t Lie helmer, Brin Hill – he did write the story, describing the process thusly:

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 Bellwether 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.

The movie will be produced by Whedon romantic and working partner, Kai Cole, plus Michael Roiff, the man we should all be thanking for bringing the impending Brie/Caplan double-hander (*drools*) Save The Date to the screen. The man’s a hero!
