Seth MacFarlane's Ted follow-up A Million Ways to Die in the West has Charlize Theron's attention. She's in talks to appear as as outlaw's wife who teaches MacFarlane's character how to shoot after MacFarlane backs out of a gunfight and disgusts his girlfriend in the process. MacFarlane is directing, co-writing, and starring, and the words Blazing and Saddles are being mentioned.
