Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane to make R-Rated Comedy about a Teddy Bear


Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to a $65 million budget R-Rated comedy called Ted. The script for the film was co-written by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. The comedy will be directed by MacFarlane, which will make Ted his first feature film.

The movie is described as a hard ‘R’ comedy about a man and his teddy bear. The movie will be a mix of live action and CGI. MacFarlane will also co-star and provide the voice for the CG-generated title character Ted.

The film is scheduled to go into production sometime this year. MacFarlane’s time is already stretched pretty thin with his work on Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad.

Fox actually had first dibs on the Ted film, but passed it up because of its R-rating.

How will this film turn out?
Well I'm sure he will just apply the now famous, tried an tested Seth Macfarlane's creative process
There will be a 33% chance it will be utter horseshite then.
