For those of us who had an absolutely blast watching Seth MacFarlane‘s feature directorial debut, Ted, this is good news. His upcoming film A Million Ways To Die In The West will premiere in a few months, and today we get our first look. We heard about the movie a while back, and I was pretty excited to learn that MacFarlane had pulled a star-studded cast together for this one. Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, Charlize Theron and more big names are rounding out the cast. Click inside for more!
A Million Ways to Die in the West:
Indiewire has the deets:
Dusting himself off after his divisive hosting job of the Oscars last year, Seth MacFarlane has been hard at work on his next feature film, the western comedy “A Million Ways To Die In The West.” And if anyone can make the not-always-reliable genre work, it’s him. Because, really, who would’ve thought a movie about a foul-mouthed, teddy bear would earn more than $540 million worldwide?
The first look at the movie is here, and yup, that’s MacFarlane alongside Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried and Neil Patrick Harris. Rounding out the cast is Liam Neeson, Sarah Silverman and Giovanni Ribisi. Thoughts? Let us know below. ‘Die In West’ arrives on May 30, 2014. Synopsis below:
After a cowardly sheep farmer backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.
So, I totally did not recognize Charlize Theron! She looks… different right? I’m assuming it’s the makeup or something. Anyway, the description of this movie always cracks me up. A cowardly sheep farmer? LMAO. It all sounds so ridiculous, but I have faith in MacFarlane. Hopefully we get to check out a trailer soon– I really want to see this cast in action!
