After snagging a Golden Globe nomination this week for her work in Black Swan, it looks like Mila Kunis will next star in Seth Macfarlane’s (mostly) live-action comedy Ted.

The Family Guy creator’s latest tells the story of a boy who wishes that his teddy bear would come to life and become his best friend. His wish comes true, but 20 years later, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be; the bear has turned into a “cursing, smoking delinquent that is preventing the man from maturing.”

Kunis—who also voices Meg on Family Guy—will play the main character’s girlfriend, who has a hard time coming to terms with his relationship with the bear. Macfarlane will voice the bear, and Mark Wahlberg is in talks to play the lead role.

No word on when filming is set to begin.
