Last fall, after making a splash at the summer box office, Universal confirmed they would be developing a sequel to Seth MacFarlane's R-rated comedy Ted, starring the "Family Guy" creator as a teddy bear brought to life by the childhood wish of his best friend, played by Mark Wahlberg. Now the studio is committing to a release date sometime in April of 2015. This comes after MacFarlane answered a question on Twitter saying, "We're aiming for a 2015 Passover release date." We weren't too sure if he was joking, but Universal has confirmed the April 3rd release date for the raunchy teddy bear to return to the big screen.
But before that, MacFarlane has his western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West coming on May 30th, 2014.For those who aren't aware, the story follows a cowardly sheep farmer (MacFarlane) who chickens out of a gunfight, causing his woman (Amanda Seyfried) to leave him. But that's just the beginning of the farmer's problems. The mysterious wife (Charlize Theron) of an outlaw rides into town, helps him find courage and makes him fall in love all over again. But when the woman's husband, a dangerous outlaw (Liam Neeson), comes back to town, the farmer must stand up to the criminal to defend his honor. The cast also includes Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman and Neil Patrick Harris. We can't wait!
