Wahlberg in Final Talks for MacFarlane’s Ted


Mark Wahlberg is in final talks to star in Seth MacFarlane’s feature directing debut Ted.

The film is “about a grown man whose cherished teddy bear comes to life as the result of a childhood wish, causing all sorts of complications.” The teddy bear will be a CGI creation and voiced by MacFarlane.

Scott Stuber is producing the comedy for Universal, while Media Rights Capital is co-financing.

MacFarlane wrote the script with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.
