Just last week, Seth MacFarlane managed to sign Charlize Theron up for his follow-up to Ted, the comedy Western A Million Ways To Die In The West. Now, despite being busy preparing to host the Oscars, he’s got another lady interested in his movie – Amanda Seyfried – who’s currently in talks to join the film.
A Million Ways To Die In The West is about a mild-mannered farmer (MacFarlane) who chickens out when a gunfight erupts on his property. Annoyed at his singular lack of spine, his girlfriend (Seyfried) ditches him.
In the hope of winning her back, he makes a deal with the wife (Theron) of a notorious outlaw, to teach him how to handle a gun and be a bit more of a badass. However, as he starts getting closer to the sharp-shooting woman, trouble erupts when her vicious husband reappears.
MacFarlane also co-wrote the script with Ted cohorts Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, with the movie being described as being similar in tone to Blazing Saddles. The plan is to start shooting in May. (Source: THR)
