Chris Pratt’s ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ Has Been Delayed Indefinitely By Universal

‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ Movie Stopped In Its Tracks By Universal

To make matters worse, it was revealed on Tuesday that Universal Pictures had removed Pratt's upcoming Cowboy Ninja Viking adaptation from its release schedule for reasons unknown. That's pretty shocking for a film that was going to go into production next month. The film will be directed by Michelle MacLaren from a script by Dan Mazeau, Ryan Engle, Craig Mazin, Paul Wernick and David Reese.

Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World franchises) was set to star as a new kind of assassin in the film who manifests the toughest skills of three different personas: Cowboy, Ninja, and Viking.

Cowboy Ninja Viking tells the story of Duncan, a man who suffers from multiple personality disorder before he's made into a "triplet" after participating in a top-secret government program that creates deadly super soldiers. Priyanka Chopra has been in talks to play the female lead alongside Pratt's Duncan, though her future involvement likely depends on when Universal decides to move ahead with the project.

Family of missing U.S. student crowdfund for her return: ‘She’s out there’
Ms Tibbetts was reported missing the next morning when she didn't show up for work at a day care centre in a nearby town. Rob Tibbetts, the young woman's father, called the reward "another tool in our arsenal" to bring her home.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio said the project remains in an active development and will be dated down the line to accommodate production scheduling. The movie will get a new release date at a later time.

James Gunn was sacked over a serious of abhorrent tweets, and though Pratt and his cast mates have lobbied Disney to hire their boss back, it doesn't look likely. We'd expect to see at least one other writer to take a crack at it, in an attempt to get the movie back on track. But turns out that will have to wait because the movie has been delayed indefinitely.

Cowboy Ninja Viking was originally slated set to hit theaters on June 28, 2019.
