Chris Pratt’s ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ yanked from release schedule, delayed indefinitely

The studio announced - and Collider confirmed - on Tuesday that it had pulled the Chris Pratt-starring Cowboy Ninja Viking from its release schedule and delayed production indefinitely. 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.

Reports say the film, which was to be the feature debut from Canadian "Breaking Bad" and "Game of Thrones" director Michelle MacLaren, had been suffering from script issues. Cowboy Ninja Viking's story centres around a lethal agent, played by Pratt, whose treatment by a psychotherapist leaves him with "an ability to manifest the deadliest attributes of the three titular personas". The project is based on the Image Comics graphic novel by by AJ Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo.

Pratt is coming off the success of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Now we do have a rough idea of what to expect from the new The Clone Wars season that is coming out on the Disney streaming service.

Ever since she has walked out of Bharat, Priyanka Chopra is constantly in the news. She is also developing The Nightingale, a WWII thriller that is set up over at Tr-Star.

Craig Mazin wrote an earlier draft of the screenplay with an original draft by Paul Wernick and Everett David Reese. Pratt is still producing the project with Michael De Luca, Mark Gordon and Entertainment 360, and Universal is expected to re-date the project at a later time. Collider is reporting that the comic book movie, which Universal was hoping would be a tentpole for them next summer, has been put on indefinite hold. 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.

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