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…
