MUMBAI: This summer, Universal Pictures India gears up to take audiences on a joyride with their latest offering ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West.’ From the makers of the acclaimed 2012 fantasy-comedy ‘Ted’, this sure-shot entertainer sees the multi-faceted Seth MacFarlane don the director’s hat once again as he stars alongside the likes of Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris and Liam Neeson. An adaptation of MacFarlane’s novel by the same name, the western comedy movie will release across Indian theatres in June.
Set in the nineteenth century Arizona, ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ is the hysterical narrative of Albert (Seth MacFarlane), a sheep farmer whose lack of courage results in his withdrawal from a gunfight, thus losing his beloved girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried) who leaves him for another man. However, when a mysterious and beautiful woman (Charlize Theron) rides into town, she helps him discover his bravery and courage and they begin to fall in love. Albert begins to realize his true potential but when the woman’s husband (Liam Neeson), a notorious Outlaw arrives seeking revenge and demanding payback, the herder is forced to put his new found courage to test.
Interestingly, enough MacFarlane, who has created some of the most popular content on television and film today, while also expanding his career in music and philanthropy, turned author with the novel ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ on which the movie is based. Boasting a stellar star-cast, and bringing together the best in Hollywood, the movie promises to be nothing short of a laughter riot expecting to emulate the success of the makers’ previous outing ‘Ted’, which took the box office by storm.
