It is being equated to the Mel Brooks ingenious comedy Blazing Saddles, Universal's Ted creator and star Seth MacFarlane will be stepping into the realm of western comedies and he wants Charlize Theron to be his leading lady.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Theron is close to signing onto MacFarlane's next big Hollywood venture called A Million Ways To Die in The West.  

THR describes the film as a "comedy that 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 who offers to teach him how to shoot, the farmer at first sees a chance to win back his love but slowly falls for the woman. Complications ensue when the outlaw returns and reclaims his woman."

Production could begin in May, according to THR.

Theron is also dipping into the producer's well herself with her upcoming television series Hatfield & McCoys.  Read more about it here.

'CATCHING FIRE' DIRECTOR DESCRIBES SAM CLAFLIN AS 
"CHARMING & SEXY"


(Source: Lionsgate) Sam & Jennifer Lawrence

SWATH fans are fully aware of Sam Claflin's [Prince] charming side particularly if you follow him on Twitter.  Apparently, the new Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence discovered his charm when casting Sam for the role as Finnick Odair.

MTV News spoke with Lawrence, who is recently known for his film Water for Elephants which stars Kristen Stewart's Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, about his upcoming film Catching Fire.  Catching Fire is the next installment of the Hunger Games franchise.  

Lawrence spoke about why Sam was chosen for the role.


"When Lawrence inherited "The Hunger Games" franchise he also inherited the responsibility of casting "Catching Fire"'s most anticipated dream boat: District 4 tribute Finnick Odair. For a while there, it seemed every working actor under the age of 35 was rumored to be in contention, but it was "Snow White and the Huntsman" star Sam Claflin who would ultimately wield the trident. Many fans were none-to-sure about Claflin's casting, but Lawrence ensured the 26-year-old will live up to expectations. 

"[Claflin] is very athletic, which is great. He's in great shape. He's very charismatic," Lawrence said. 'But I was also looking in the long term. There's kind of a rouge-like quality to him in this book. And long term, he's actually an emotional character and a very loyal character and a character who's in love; a character who experienced quite a lot of sadness. And he was really able to tap into that, as well as being really charming and sexy and handsome as hell.'"

STEWART LEADS FORBES LIST OF HOLLYWOOD'S 'TOP GROSSING ROMANTIC COUPLES'






What does it say about the millennial generation that the most popular love story of their time involves a young lady, a vampire and a werewolf? ~ Forbes

Well it just says that love has no limits.  Kristen Stewart along with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson is the #1 romantic onscreen Top Grossing Romantic Couple according to Forbes. 

Forbes determined their list by taking the "top-grossing romantic movies of the last three years" from the domestic box office data collated by Box Office Mojo.  Stewart's Twilight was the biggest money maker during that period of time bringing in $1.17 billion domestically and $3.3 billion worldwide. 

A Rom-Com Twilight is not.  Twilight is a story about an ordinary teenager who falls unknowingly in love with a vampire.

Pattinson made the list twice coming in 10th place with his film Water for Elephants which co-starred Reese Witherspoon as his romantic interest.  The film bought in $117 million worldwide. 

To see the entire list, check it out here at Forbes.

VIDEO:  STEWART CAUGHT IN A BAD LIP READING MOMENT





There have been many opportunities to take advantage of Kristen Stewart's Twilight series both positive and negative

Here is a parody clip (above) located by Twilight Lexicon which is one of the funniest parody clips around.  Check out the changed voiceovers by Bad Lip Reading featuring Stewart in a variety of scenes from the Twilight film New Moon.  If you know the actual script, it is even funnier.  


Then check out the Twilight 'Edward & Bella' version below.  The "dude" line in the interview scene is classic. Let's hope they will consider a SWATH bad lip read in the future.
