The film stars Mark Wahlberg as a man whose childhood wish that his teddy bear could come to life was granted. While this can be great fun when you’re ten, complications can arise when he’s still hanging around two decades later. Ribisi will be Whalberg’s friend Donny who is strangely obsessed with Ted, the living teddy bear. MacFarlane will supply the voice of the titular living toy.
Family Guy creator MacFarlane started production on this his debut feature film yesterday, with filming commencing in the Boston suburb of Norwood.
