The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Liam Neeson is set to play an outlaw in Seth MacFarlane's comedy-Western, A Million Ways to Die in the West.
If the negotiations are successful, Neeson will play an outlaw alongside Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried, who have already signed up for the movie. Giovanni Ribisi is also expected to join them to replace Jonah Hill, who was previously attached to the project.
Filming on A Million Ways to Die in the West will begin in May. Seth MacFarlane will play a cowardly shepherd who is dumped by his girlfriend. He will then try and become a shooting ace with the help of an outlaw's wife whom he will fall in love with.
MacFarlane, who hosted this year's Oscars, is best known for the animated series Family Guy and American Dad as well as the film Ted.
