Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) is planning a follow-up to his feature-length directorial debut Ted. A Million Ways to Die in the West has been described as a Blazing Saddles-style film that will look at how dangerous life really was in the late 1800s.
The script, written by MacFarlane and his Ted co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, is said to feature MacFarlane's trademark racy humour. He will both direct and star in A Million Ways to Die in the West, which is set to start shooting next summer. Media Rights Capital and producer Scott Stuber are behind the Western comedy.
A sequel to MacFarlane's successful first film Ted is also currently in development, and he will be hosting the Oscars ceremony in February. »
