Last December, I shared you info that Ted co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild scripted a western comedy titled A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST which is going to be a starring and directing vehicle for MacFarlane, production is expected to start this summer.
No plot details yet but it’s described as in the same vein as Mel Brooks’ classic western comedy, Blazing Saddles.
A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST promises to have MacFarlane’s racy humor and is now looking to cast a female lead.
Well, they’ve found that female lead and they’ve revealed the plot..
Heat Vision said Charlize Theron will act opposite Seth MacFarlane in this project, co-cripted, and to be directed by MacFarlane.
The story is about a farmer who cowards out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leaves him. A notorious outlaw offers to teach him how to shoot, the farmer wants to win back his girlfriend but then the farmer falls for the notorious outlaw’s wife, played by Theron. Of course awkwardness and complications ensue when the outlaw returns.
