Listen, kids. At least this isn’t a remake, a reborquel, a romantic comedy, a vampire movie, an unofficial prequel, or a standalone Aquaman movie. Seth MacFarlane (I don’t need to tell you his previous works here, right?) has once again earned that shit-eating grin of his with another big screen deal. This time, MacFarlane, and his Ted-writing cohorts Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, have written a comedy Western. Since I’ve heard that Ted was better than anyone thought it would be, I suppose this could work.
There aren’t many details as of yet, but the movie’s title will be A Million Ways To Die In The West. MacFarlane will, of course, star in the movie. Shall we place bets on which voice he’ll use? I’m guessing a Stewie-esque voice, because MacFarlane will find the idea of a gay or possibly gay cowboy irresistible.
Comparisons to the beloved Blazing Saddles have been made by the People Who Write Up That Sort Of Thing For Reporters. Those same People have indicated that the script has “contemporary humor” alongside the myriad of horrible and painful ways to expire back in the 1800s. Get ready for dick and fart jokes with a side of dysentery and murder!
