Unfortunately, Chris Pratt and Priyanka Chopra's upcoming film, Cowboys Ninja Vikings, has been removed by Universal Pictures from its release calendar. The film was expected to be a summer tentpole for Universal, which had dated it for June 28, 2019, though sources say the studio wasn't eager to rush to meet that release date, given that it has franchise hopes for the property. Pratt's character would have the skills of a cowboy, a ninja and a viking whilst others included Amish, Demo Expert, and Army Captain.
Cowboy Ninja Viking is an action film adapted from the popular graphic novel by AJ Liebermanand illustratorRiley Rossmo. The studio didn't bother giving the movie a new release date, but word is that the production is still active and will happen eventually. This meant shooting would need to start soon.
Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the two guys behind the Deadpool movie scripts and Zombieland, wrote the screenplay for Cowboy Ninja Viking, with newer drafts turned in by Hangover 2 and Identity Theft writer Craig Mazin. The film, set to star Chris Pratt and Priyanka Chopra, was expected to begin production next month. MacLaren and Pratt will still remain attached to the project, with Chopra staying on if the scheduling ultimately works out.
While the film is now delayed indefinitely, according to Collider it's said to still be very much in active development. But turns out that will have to wait because the movie has been delayed indefinitely.
The film will be directed by Michelle MacLaren, who is best known for helming episodes of major TV series such as Game of Thrones, Westworld, The Leftovers and The Breaking Bad.
