Amanda Seyfried is the latest name to join Seth MacFarlane‘s Western satire ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West,’ proving that MacFarlane really has a way with the ladies.

THR reports that Amanda Seyfried is in talks to join Charlize Theron in Seth MacFarlane’s ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West.’ The ‘Family Guy’ creator will follow up his talking bear comedy ‘Ted’ with Western comedy with “modern sensibilities,” which we assume means tons of references to pop culture relics.

The film follows a cowardly farmer whose girlfriend leaves him when he backs out of a gunfight. But then he meets the wife of a famous outlaw, played by Theron, who offers to teach him a thing or two about gun-slinging so he can win his girlfriend back. Seyfried will play the girlfriend, of course, while the part of the farmer has yet to be cast. ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ is scheduled to begin shooting (ha ha) in May, so we expect to hear more casting news soon.

MacFarlane is the creator of ‘Family Guy,’ ‘American Dad,’ and ‘The Cleveland Show,’ but has been recently making the transition to feature film. He’ll also be hosting the 2013 Oscars at the end of this month, at which point our culture will have reached peak MacFarlane saturation levels.
