Amanda Seyfried is in talks to join Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming A Million Ways To Die In The West. Once a deal is reached, she will have officially joined the western comedy in which the Family Guy creator will star and direct, having co-written the screenplay with his Ted collaborator’s Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.
Seyfried will play the girlfriend of a timid farmer (MacFarlane) who leaves him after he chickens out of a gunfight. Charlize Theron has already been signed to play the woman who helps MacFarlane’s character discover his courage and become a gunfighter.
The film is set to start shooting in May.
