The Hollywood Reporter writes that Amanda Seyfried is in talks to join A Million Ways to Die in the West, Seth MacFarlane’s follow-up to Ted. A contemporary Western, the film centers on MacFarlane as a farmer whose girlfriend (Seyfried) leaves him after he backs out of a gunfight. Charlize Theron would play an outlaw’s wife who teaches this farmer how to shoot. Also, they’ll all presumably have an encyclopedic knowledge of eighties pop culture.
