Seth MacFarlane's Ted Picked Up by Universal
04.13.10 by REELZ
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has sold the movie rights to his comedy about a man and his teddy bear to Universal. This will mark MacFarlane's first directorial debut of a major motion picture. Until now, he has been known only for edgy, and sometimes controversial, TV cartoons.
Ted, which has been described as an R-rated mixture of live-action and CGI similar to the Alvin & the Chipmunks movies, was reportedly purchased for $65 million. No release date has been set so far, but look for production to start later this year.
For fans of MacFarlane's humor, this news begs the question: When will a Family Guy movie be coming out?
