Ted: Seth MacFarlane's film will become a TV series


Peacock, NBCUniversal's streaming service, continues to be enriched with original content. The American portal Deadline has in fact announced the creation of a TV series based on Ted, the famous 2012 comedy film that saw Seth MacFarlane lend his voice to a rather scurrilous teddy bear.

The film, obviously banned to minors, he starred Mark Wahlberg as John and Mila Kunis as his girlfriend, Lori, grossing over $ 500 million at the box office. The success led Universal to make a sequel, released in 2015, which however did not get the same hype as the first chapter.

At the moment it is not clear what the plot of the television adaptation will be, but the creator Family Guy is in talks to voice Ted again. It seems highly unlikely, however, a return of Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis.

The first film has become a real cult with scenes still remember today. In 2013 he even won an Oscar nomination for the song "Everybody Needs A Best Friend".

At the moment MacFarlane is busy with the realization of the third season of The Orville, a sci-fi TV series by FOX and then landed on Hulu. Filming, stopped several times due to the health emergency, is still in progress.

Wahlberg, on the other hand, will return to the big screen in the awaited film adaptation of Uncharted where he will play the role of Sully, Nathan's trusted friend Drake (Tom Holland). Fans are still waiting to see a first trailer.

Extremely Wicked filmmaker Joe Berlinger sends angry email to director behind new Ted Bundy project

Joe Berlinger sent an angry email to fellow director Amber Sealey over her comments about his Ted Bundy projects.

The filmmaker behind Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which starred Zac Efron as the notorious serial killer, accused Sealey – who is releasing a new film about Bundy – of “tearing down” his work.

Berlinger also directed the Netflix docu-series Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

In a screenshot of an email that Sealey shared on her Instagram, he wrote to her: “Forgive the unsolicited advice, but after reading some of your interviews about your Bundy movie, I feel compelled to tell you that tearing down my work to promote yours is a slippery slope and intellectually dishonest and deeply offensive.

“How did my film glorify Bundy? Do you know anything about me and my 30 years focusing on criminal justice issues in my work, from wrongful conviction to criminal advocacy.”

He continued: “Interestingly, my Bundy doc series was accused by some of glorification because it discussed the hideous violence against women, and then my Bundy movie with Efron, which came out second, was criticised for glorifying Bundy by NOT showing any violence (until the final scene). Which is it?”

In the caption of her Instagram post, Sealey wrote: “We have an extra ticket for you to the #NoManOfGod premiere tonight if you’d like to see the movie for yourself and we can discuss more in person openly?”

She continued: “Cuz this felt like you were just trying to make me feel s****y right before my screening. Have a great day. #femalefilmmakerfriday #bundyisdivisive.”

Berlinger issued a statement to Varietyafter Sealey posted to Instagram, in which he said he had intended to keep their exchange private and suggested she was trying to seek publicity by sharing his email.

“Promoting her film about the rape and murder of women by tearing down my film that was designed to be a victim-focused film about the psychology of betrayal and deception, made with the full support of victim Liz Kendall, played by Lily Collins, and was supported by other victims of Bundy’s crimes felt intellectually dishonest,” he said.

“In a private email, I let Amber know my feelings in a thoughtful manner. Her publication of that private email is as self-promotional as her comments about my film. There is room for many takes on a subject, and I wish her the best. It’s a miracle that any film gets made these days — so to tear down other people’s work to promote your own is not how filmmakers should treat one another. Remember, she made it public, not me. Mine was a private email.”

No Man of God stars Luke Kirby as Bundy and Elijah Wood is Bill Hagmaier, the FBI agent Bundy confessed to.
