Seth MacFarlane to direct and star in western comedy, A Million Ways to Die in the West

12.03.2012

Did any of you see TED? Well, someone must have because the film was not only a surprise hit, but made $501 million worldwide. Because of the success, the movie will get a sequel which is in early development. However, Seth MacFarlane is also willing to deliver original works, like this next project he's got cooking.

MacFarlane and TED co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild have penned a western comedy titled, A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST. The plot has been described, "as a Blazing Saddles-style movie -- meaning a Western with contemporary humor, with one undercurrent being just how dangerous and painful life really was in the late 1800s. The script, said to be laced with MacFarlane’s hallmark racy humor, also calls for a romantic female lead."

In addition to writing, MacFarlane will also direct and star in the film for Summer 2013.

I have no issues with this. I've always enjoyed MacFarlane's brand of humor, and hope that he turns out some decent comedies in the years to come.

This guy is too calculating. Or his agent is.

Django unchained press starts and suddenly this springs up out of nowhere on a fast greenlight.

Even if you don't like his comedy respect his ability to work a system used to working people like him.

Summer 2013?

They plan on having this finished in 6-8 months? Doesn't that seem rushed, especially when it's just been announced?

Wait: I misread it, didn't I? You meant that filming will start in Summer 2013, right? Sorry. I must have got confused.

I'll be interested to see how I and the rest of his audience will react when it's actually him acting, not just his voice performance.

SNL is different. It's live, it's purely for comedy with no dramatic arc/three act structure, etc. and MacFarlane is ultimately tailoring his schtick to SNL's brand of comedy. Watching him as one character, in a big expensive live action space movie, for two hours? Probably using his real voice or close to it? We have NO idea how that'll be.
