Seth MacFarlane Set for 'MILLION WAYS TO DIE' Action Comedy
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Seth MacFarlane and 'Ted' co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild have written the script for a live-action film to be titled A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST. The actor is set to star and direct the feature film from Media Rights Capital.
The movie is being described as a "Blazing Saddles-style movie... a Western with contemporary humor, with one undercurrent being just how dangerous and painful life really was in the late 1800s."
MacFarlane's 'Ted' was one of the surprise hits of the summer, earning over $500 million globally, a huge take considering it took only $50 million to produce. A sequel to the film is already in development.
Along with his job as co-creator and voice provider for FOX's hit animated series 'Family Guy',
MacFarlane is set to host the Oscars in February. He recently served as host of NBC's 'Saturday Night Live.'
