First look at Seth Macfarlane’s new western

2 January 2014

A million ways to look at promotional material.

Here’s our very first peek at Seth Macfarlane’s forthcoming western comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West.

The new film will be the Family Guy creator’s second foray into live-action directing, after 2012’s Ted.

Not much is known about this new film but it’s understood that unlike Ted, there will be no major animation element to this film.

As well as writing and directing, Macfarlane will also star in the lead, alongside A-list co-stars including Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Sarah Silverman, and Giovanni Ribisi.

The official synopsis runs thusly:

“After a cowardly sheep farmer backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man.  When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love.  But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.”

A Million Ways To Die In The West will be released in the UK on June 6th - just as soon as they’ve figured out a way to fit that title on one poster.
