Ted 2 was first confirmed by Universal Pictures last September, but we haven't heard anything about the project since then. Seth MacFarlane is expected to return as writer-director and the voice of Ted, along with Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett. Seth MacFarlane co-wrote the original Ted screenplay with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, but it isn't known if the writers are coming back for the sequel. Ted took in a whopping $394 million worldwide during its theatrical run last summer.
Seth MacFarlane is currently directing the Western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West, which is slated for release on May 30, 2014. It is believed that the filmmaker will start shooting Ted 2 in the summer of 2014 after A Million Ways to Die in the West is released.
