Despite hitting it big with the billion-dollar smash The Avengers in 2012, Joss Whedon hasn’t lost his taste for smaller indies. One of his latest in that vein is In Your Eyes, a supernatural romance that Whedon wrote and then handed off to Brin Hill to direct.
The film boasts a juicy premise that seems straight out of Buffy. Michael Stahl-David and Zoe Kazan play two strangers who share an unexplained psychic link. Since childhood, they’ve occasionally been able to experience each other’s senses. When she gets into a sledding accident as a kid, for example, he passes out in a classroom thousands of miles away.

Joss Whedon‘s next movie as a director is about as mainstream and big-budget as movies get. But his next release as a writer is more Much Ado About Nothing than Avengers. Directed by Brin Hill, In Your Eyes follows two people (Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David) who’ve never met and are separated by thousands of miles.

Tribeca Film Festival attendees will get to watch the full movie when it premieres this weekend, but the rest of the world can watch the opening scene right now. Watch the first In Your Eyes clip after the jump.

Joss Whedon surprised us last week with the announcement that, in addition to making a little movie for Marvel Studios called The Avengers, he has already shot a film based on the Shakespeare play Much Ado About Nothing. The formal announcement of that small film project went hand in hand with the debut of Whedon’s company Bellwether Pictures.
That company, created by Whedon and Kai Cole, is a micro-studio meant to create small indies for all media, “embracing a DIY ethos and newer technologies.” Now Bellwether has announced its second film, In Your Eyes, which Whedon scripted and Brin Hill will direct. Read More »
