Chris Pratt's Cowboy Ninja Viking Delayed Indefinitely

It’s learned that one month before filming was supposed to start, that Universal Pictures has yanked Chris Pratt’s Cowboy Ninja Viking from its release schedule.

It’s now reported that Cowboy Ninja Viking has no new release date and is delayed indefinitely; the movie was originally going to be released June 28, 2019.

No reason is known why the movie has been pulled, but Universal Pictures noted Cowboy Ninja Viking remains in active development with plans to reschedule filming and the release date at a later time.

As of now, Chris Pratt is still attached to play the lead as Duncan, a multifaceted assassin with the ability to manifest the deadliest attributes of three distinct personas: a cowboy, a ninja, and a viking. Priyanka Chopra has been in talks for the female lead.

Michelle MacLaren is also still attached to direct.

Cowboy Ninja Viking is adapting the comic book of the same name by published by Image Comics created by writer A.J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo. 

The comic is described as:

It started with Dr. Sebastian Ghislain: rogue psychotherapist/covert op/DJ. Tasked with creating a counter-intelligence unit, he turned to those long thought useless to society…patients with Multiple Personality Disorder. These agents became known simply as Triplets. Misguided? Yeah. Impractical? Sure. But did it work? Absolutely not. Now someone has located each Triplet and created a band of ridiculously disturbed, but highly effective assassins. Our only hope? A Triplet known as Cowboy Ninja Viking!
