Liam Neeson is reportedly in talks to join Seth MacFarlane's comedy Western A Million Ways To Die In The West.

The Taken star is said to be in negotiations to play a nefarious outlaw, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Charlize Theron would portray his feisty wife, who teaches a mild-mannered and cowardly farmer - played by Seth - the ways of gun-fighting so he can win back his girlfriend (Amanda Seyfried) in the upcoming film.

Giovanni Ribisi is also on board as Seth's screen best friend, which Jonah Hill had been attached to, reported Deadline.

Seth, who will also direct, has written the screenplay with Ted co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.

Production is scheduled to begin in May.

Liam, who reprised his role as retired CIA agent Bryan Mills in Taken 2, will next star in Non-Stop with Julianne Moore. He will be in Paul Haggis' The Third Person with Olivia Wilde, and has a voice-acting role lined up in Lego: The Piece Of Resistance.

He is also set to voice a villainous raccoon in The Nut Job, and is to star in crime thriller A Walk Among The Tombstones.
