Seems like Amanda is close to getting the comedy she wanted?! (I assume this is the one she’s been referring to in interviews.)

Amanda Seyfried is in negotiations to join the cast of Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West, the filmmaker’s follow-up feature to his hit Ted.

If a deal is made, Seyfried will join Charlize Theron and MacFarlane, who is starring in, directing and co-writing the Western comedy with modern sensibilities.

MRC is behind the movie, and Scott Stuber is producing with MacFarlane.

Million Ways follows a sheepish farmer who chickens out of a gunfight and sees his girlfriend leave him. When he meets the wife of a notorious outlaw (Theron) who offers to teach him how to shoot, the farmer sees a chance to win back his love.

Seyfried will play the deserting girlfriend.

A May production start is being eyed.

Seyfried is coming off playing Cosette in Universal and Working Title’s Oscar-nominated adaptation of Les Miserables. She also has the much-buzzed about Linda Lovelace biopic, Lovelace, awaiting release.

Seyfried is repped by Innovative and Frankfurt Kurnit.

Additionally, The Girl Who Conned the Ivy League starring Amanda Seyfried is also gaining traction:

“That is getting a lot of momentum. That’s got Amanda Seyfried in it. It’s about a girl who reinvents herself. She’s a humble, humdrum girl who finally has enough. She reinvents herself and ends up attending an Ivy League school and dating the guy who’s a military cadet. She did so by stealing someone’s identity, and she never meant to cause any harm. But she realizes it’s very damaging. It’s a personal character study that I think Amanda is going to crush.”

According to Twitch, Amanda Seyfried has been offered the role of Cosette in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables. In the musical, the character is the daughter of Fantine, who is set to be played by Anne Hathaway. The actresses are close in age, but their stories are told more than a decade apart, which explains why Seyfried, who is only three years younger than Hathaway, can play the daughter. Also already attached to the film are Hugh Jackman (as Jean Valjean), Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe, and Sacha Baron Cohen. The screenplay was written by William Nicholson and the film is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 7th.
