It looks like Giovanni Ribisi and Liam Neeson will be making us laugh in Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West. The two actors are the latest additions to the western comedy.
This project reunites MacFarlane with his Ted screenwriters Alex Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. MacFarlane also plans to star in the film, alongside the previously mentioned actors, Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried.
A Million Ways follows MacFarlane as a cowboy who, after losing his girlfriend (Seyfried) begins to train as a gunfighter with a famous outlaw (Neeson). The only trouble is, the cowboy begins to develop feelings for the outlaw’s wife (Theron).
Ribisi’s role is said to be that of MacFarlane’s character best friend.
This cast is definitly intriguing. Most of these actors lean more towards drama/action. But it’ll be nice to see them in a different type of movie… especially since MacFarlane will be directing and starring.
