Amanda Seyfried is about to become very well-acquainted with a dirty-mouthed talking bear.

The actress has landed the female lead in Ted 2, a follow-up to Seth MacFarlane's 2012 comedy that will bring Mark Wahlberg back as the owner of everyone's favorite NC-17 rated stuffed animal.

Details on Seyfried's role are unclear at the moment, but she takes over for Mila Kunis, who may briefly reprise her role in the sequel as Wahlberg's love interest.

Sources tell Deadline that this is simply a creative decision by MacFarlane, who remains very close with Kunis.

Ready to go for another Ride Along? Universal sure hopes you are.

Our friends at Movie Fanatic have confirmed that a sequel to this Kevin Hart-Ice Cube blockbuster is in the works, with both stars signed on for Ride Along 2 Tim Story likely coming back as director.

The comedy has already earned over $117 million at the box office, becoming the first surprise hit of 2014.

Ride-Along Stars

It's not hard to see where Ride Along 2 could go, as the original (SPOILER ALERT!) concluded with Hart's character receiving permission from Cube's cop to marry the latter's sister, while also heading off to the police academy.

Quite a few adventures could easily take place there.

Check out this series of Ride Along quotes and sound off: Are you psyched for a sequel?

Break out the dollar bills, ladies. Heck, you, too, men:

Magic Mike 2 really is a go!

Following mere chatter over a follow-up to Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 hit, Channing Tatum has now given fans a reason to get legitimately excited.

He posted a photo to Facebook this week of himself at a desk, staring at a bust of Matthew McConaughey's mug, and wrote as a caption to the image:

“What better way to start writing Magic Mike 2 than with my old friend Dallas?” 

Tatum first confirmed a sequel in July 2012, but little had been mentioned about the project until now.
