Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is getting ready to direct his first feature film comedy called Ted. The movie has a $65 million dollar budget, and it will be a hard-R movie that revolves around a teddy bear.
Today we've learned that Mark Wahlberg is in negotiations to take on the lead role in the film. "Wahlberg will play an average Boston guy who's normal except for the childhood wish he made that his teddy bear could come to life... and it did. Years later, the boy is an adult and the bear is still his best friend. But the bear, a carousing, irresponsible slacker, is getting in the way of his buddy committing to adulthood and the girl he loves."
It was previously reported that the film will also feature “a racist homosexual, a woman obsessed with talking about men shaving their assholes, and a ‘Jewish-looking’ person who makes anti-Semitic remarks.”
This is going to be one hell of a whacky movie! MacFarlane, who also wrote the script for the film with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, will provide the voice of the teddy bear, which will be done in CGI. The rest of the movie will be live-action.
I can't wait to see what MacFarlane has in store for us with this comedy. I can only imagine it's going to be absolutely hilarious. I also love that we are going to see Wahlberg playing opposite an animated teddy bear. This is going to be fun. What do you all think?
