Charlize Theron to Join Seth MacFarlane's New Western Comedy?

By AMC February 5, 2013

Seth MacFarlane is moving on up in the world. After the success of his hit series "Family Guy", he proved he could flex his big-screen directorial chops with last year's hilarious comedy "Ted". He has been given the huge honor of hosting the 2013 Academy Awards. Now, it looks like he might have Academy Award winning beauty Charlize Theron, star in his next big-screen venture. Not bad MacFarlane, not bad.

The film is called "A Million Ways to Die in the West", and it is said to be a comedy in the vein of "Blazing Saddles". The story follows a farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and watches his girlfriend leave him in result. He then meets the wife of a notorious outlaw who offers to teach him how to shoot. The farmer sees this as a chance to win back his love, but slowly falls for the woman instead. As one can imagine, complications ensue.

Theron is apparently in final negotiations to join the project, that MacFarlane is set to direct, star and produce. We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
