A new red band trailer has been released for Ted 2, the upcoming sequel to Family Guy and American Dad! creator Seth MacFarlane‘s 2012 live action directorial debut—a huge hit that made almost $550 million worldwide on a $50 million budget.
The sequel follows Ted, the lovable talking teddy bear with a bit of a potty mouth and mouth that enjoys a bit of pot every now and again, as he attempts to prove himself human enough to have a child with his wife…which of course involves finding the right sperm donor.

Another big name actor has joined the cast of Ted 2. It’s being reported that Taken and The Grey star Liam Neeson has signed on to Seth MacFarlane‘s sequel, a follow-up to his 2012 live-action directorial debut.
Neeson joins Morgan Freeman, who was cast in the movie earlier this month, as well as fellow newcomer Amanda Seyfried and the first movie’s returning cast such as MacFarlane, Mark Wahlberg, and Mila Kunis.

Seth MacFarlane (Ted, Family Guy) directs, produces, co-writes, and stars as cowardly sheep farmer Albert Stark in A Million Ways to Die in the West. After Albert backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) leaves him for another man (Neil Patrick Harris).
When the mysterious and beautiful Anna (Charlize Theron) rides into town, she helps Albert find his courage and they – of course – fall deeply in love amidst all the dick jokes. But when her husband, a notorious outlaw named Clinch (Liam Neeson), arrives seeking retribution, the farmer must put his newfound gunfighting skills to the test.
If you thought that Ted, the live-action Mark Wahlberg comedy featuring a foul-mouthed CGI teddy bear, was the last live-action movie from Family Guy and American Dad! creator Seth MacFarlane for a while, it appears you’d be wrong.
Ted, which MacFarlane made his live-action feature directorial debut on and voiced the title character, did huge numbers at the box office ($501 million worldwide on a $50 million budget), especially for an R-rated movie. So now plans are in the works for the next feature.
According to reports, MacFarlane wants to make a western comedy next titled A Million Ways to Die in the West, and he’s aiming to have it released in the summer of 2013.
