Mila Kunis circling Seth MacFarlane's Ted
Adam Scott is also in talks to join the project, which will mark the feature directorial debut for MacFarlane. We reported in October that Mark Wahlberg was eyeing the project, and now he is in final negotiations to star as the lead character.
The story centers on a young boy who receives a teddy bear for Christmas and makes a wish that the teddy bear can be his best friend for life. Now, 25 years later, the teddy bear is still with the main character (Mark Wahlberg), although the bear's delinquent ways have prevented the man from truly growing up.
Mila Kunis is in talks to play Mark Wahlberg's girlfriend in the movie, who wants to move the relationship forward. Adam Scott will play Mila Kunis' boss if he signs on.
Seth MacFarlane will direct from his own script and will also provide the voice of Ted. No production schedule was announced for the project.
Ted was released June 29th, 2012 and stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Seth MacFarlane, Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi, Patrick Warburton, Matt Walsh, Jessica Barth. The film is directed by Seth MacFarlane.
