Mila Kunis and Adam Scott are in negotiations to join Ted, writer/director Seth McFarlane's (Family Guy) first attempt at a feature film. The story follows a young boy who makes a wish that his teddy bear would come to life. Flash forward 25 years later and the teddy is a burden with plenty of bad habits. Mark Wahlberg is in final talks to play the lead role.
Kunis is on fire right now thanks to her scene-stealing supporting turn in Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. As for Scott, he's become a regular presence in comedies such as Step Brothers and Piranha 3D.
Eminem is ready to make his return to the movies with Southpaw, a new boxing drama that is being written by Sons of Anarchy creator/exec producer Kurt Sutter. The project is housed at DreamWorks.
The rapper recently made a huge comeback with a new album titled Recovery, which recently snagged 10 Emmy nominations.
Eminen already has an Oscar on his shelf as a result of "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile.
