Charlize Theron teams up with Seth MacFarlane (Ted) in the new comedy A Million Ways To Die In The West, as she plays a mysterious woman who changes a sheep farmer’s (MacFarlane) humdrum life once she comes strolling into town. The movie, though grounded in comedy, is a partial homage to the classic feature The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, a John Ford directed feature which is one of MacFarlane’s favorite Westerns.
The reason for the film’s picaresque is thanks to the beautiful skyline and landscapes of New Mexico. Shooting in the area, however, proved to be a challenge for the films’ cast and crew.
