Amanda Seyfried looks set to make the journey from Paris to the Wild West. The young actress is still riding high from her portrayal of Cosette in Tom Hooper’s Oscar-nominated adaptation of Les Miserables and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Seyfried will be joining Charlize Theron (Snow White and The Huntsman) in Seth McFarlane’s new comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West.
MacFarlane will be performing triple duties by writing, directing and starring in his new comedy set in the Wild West. The film centres on MacFarlane as a rather timid cowboy who ducks out of a gunfight and then sees his girlfriend (Seyfried) leave him. The cowboy then meets and begins to train as a gunfighter with a famous outlaw. However he then begins to develop feelings for the outlaw’s wife (Theron).
Seyfried is enjoying a fine run of form at the moment with a great deal of buzz surrounding another one of her projects, namely the Linda Lovelace biopic which she stars in as adult film star. Lovelace premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and due to be released soon.
