Sarah Silverman is the latest name said to be eyeing a role in Seth MacFarlane’s western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the Wreck-It Ralph star would play a prostitute opposite MacFarlane himself, Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, and Liam Neeson.
First announced late last year, the project reunites MacFarlane with his Ted screenwriters Alex Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. The plot follows MacFarlane as a cowboy who, after losing his girlfriend (Seyfried) begins to train as a gunfighter with a famous outlaw (Neeson). The only trouble is, the cowboy begins to develop feelings for the outlaw’s wife (Theron).
The fiance of Ribisi’s character, part of the gag with the prostitute role is that, despite her line of work, she refuses to have sex with him before marriage.
Scott Stuber will produce A Million Ways to Die in the West alongside MacFarlane.
