Seth MacFarlane western cast in New Mexico

Before Seth MacFarlane straps-in to explore galaxies far, far away à la his own personal reboot of the late great Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos”, he’s saddled-up along side an all star cast in “A Million Ways to Die in the West”.

The New Mexico film has been in the works since late last year with the comedic mastermind setting his sights on locations all over the state.

Since we’ve learned many of the top tier names recruited to join the cast including Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried and Oscar winner Charlize Theron.

Click through the images below to blow-up a sneak peek at a possible filming location in the remote New Mexico desert. AND check-out one of our favorite break-out NM stars, an almost unrecognizable Jackamoe Buzzell getting set to shoot a featured role in the film, hanging with MacFarlane himself!

Synopsis:

The storyline centers on a cowardly farmer (Seth MacFarlane) who loses his girl (Amanda Seyfried) when he ducks out of a fight. He goes on to meet the wife (Charlize Theron) of a notorious gunfighter who teaches him how to shoot, but runs into trouble when her outlaw husband (Liam Neeson) returns to town seeking revenge. The hapless farmer is then befriended by town prostitute (Sarah Silverman) who has had her way with just about everyone, “but refuses to have sex with her fiancé (Giovani Ribisi), believing that as Christians the couple should wait until marriage before lying down together.”

Ms. Portman, it’s Mr. McGregor Calling

Posted by on May 7, 2013 | Comments Off on Ms. Portman, it’s Mr. McGregor Calling

It's Ewan McGregor for Natalie Portman in Jane

After much ado about casting and re-casting, in round three of who will kick-up some dust and dig in his spurs opposite Oscar winner Natalie Portman in her New Mexico western “Jane Got a Gun”, her Star Wars co-star Ewan McGregor has come into focus!

Both are experienced in NM filming as Portman has been here for both “Thor” and “Brothers”, and McGregor starred in “Men Who Stare at Goats” back in and returned with Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender and Gina Carano for “Haywire”.

As everyone knows all too well nothing is confirmed until all hands are on deck, all stars are on their mark and the director yells, ACTION!

So here’s to a great shoot for all involved, how ever things fall out on this and every AWESOME production rolling right now here in New Mexico!
