Seth MacFarlane’s Next Movie Is… A Western? He’s Writing, Directing And Starring

Family Guy does Deadwood

I’m not a fan of Family Guy, and I’ve had almost no time for American Dad, but I enjoyed Ted a great deal. For some reason, Seth MacFarlane‘s moviemaking was much more suited to my tastes – a focus, less smugness, more determination to actually be about something and tell a story – then his… um… telemaking.

So I’ve certainly been looking forward to seeing what he’ll pull out of the bag next. Somewhere down the line there’s a Ted seuqel coming, but next up, and straight out of left field, is a Western.

MacFarlane has scripted A Million Ways to Die in the West with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, and is set to star and direct.

The Hollywood Reporter believe that the film will be:

a Western with contemporary humor, with one undercurrent being just how dangerous and painful life really was in the late 1800s.

Perhaps more than an undercurrent, bearing in mind the title.

It’s an interesting theme. I’m certainly rooting for this one – right now it needs studio backing, but Ted was such a smash it’s more a case of who, rather then if.
