Family Guy and Ted creator Seth Macfarlane sure is busy lately – he is hosting this year’s 85th Annual Academy Awards ceremony in a few weeks and reuniting with Ted stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis on a sequel to his successful feature directorial debut later this year.

However, in between those ventures – and obligations to his animated TV comedy series Family Guy, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show – MacFarlane will be directing and starring in his sophomore theatrical effort, A Million Ways to Die in the West. It appears that Charlize Theron is currently in final negotiations.

MacFarlane is directing A Million Ways… from a screenplay he co-wrote with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, having previously collaborated on the Ted script and worked alongside each other as voice actors, writer and co-showrunners on Family Guy. Heat Vision summarized the plot like this:

['A Million Ways...'] follows a sheepish farmer who chickens out »
