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”.

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.”

A Million and Six Ways to do Comedy Westerns in New Mexico

Posted by on January 17, 2013 | Comments Off

Adam-Sandler-Seth-MacFarlane-to-film-western-comedies-in-New-Mexico

As we first found out here, comedic genius Seth MacFarlane is looking to film part of his upcoming western parody, A Million Ways to Die in the West here in NM.

Co-written with his Ted and Family Guy writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, MacFarlane’s take on the wild west is a period piece, “with contemporary humor, with one undercurrent being just how dangerous and painful life really was in the late 1800s.”

This will be MacFarlane’s sophomore direction of a feature film, following the wildly successful run of his debut directorial work on Ted, the highly irreverent and heavily R-weighted comedy starring Mark Wahlberg which has grossed over $500M worldwide.

Recent underground reports say that A Million Ways…is this close to sealing a deal to shoot in NM.

Fellow comedy box office gold miner, Adam Sandler also has a western comedy on the horizon, and those sight/sites are also rumored to be set on NM!

Deadline Hollywood says:

This is the laffer that Sandler was going to make at Sony before Happy Madison Productions moved it to Paramount. The title [Ridiculous 6] is reminiscent of the 1960 United Artists pic The Magnificent Seven that starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and James Coburn, the drama about seven gunfighters drafted to protect a Mexican town, so might this be a variation featuring inept gunslingers?

Both films are slated for a spring shoot, wherever they may shake-out…
