Comic Sarah Silverman is in talks to join Seth MacFarlane’s western comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Silverman is up for the role of a prostitute who “engages in all sorts of lewd activities but refuses to have sex with her fiancé (Giovanni Ribisi), believing that as Christians the couple should wait until marriage before lying down together.”
Silverman joins a heavyweight cast that already consists of MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson and Amanda Seyfried.
The film’s story centers on a meek sheep farmer (MacFarlane) whose girlfriend (Seyfried) leaves him after he chickens out of a gunfight. However a mysterious woman (Theron) helps him discover his courage just in time to defender her from her outlaw husband (Neeson).
MacFarlane has scripted the movie with his Ted collaborators Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. A spring start for the film is expected.
