Priyanka Chopra, Chris Pratt's Cowboy Ninja Viking Delayed Indefinitely

Priyanka Chopra, Chris Pratt's Cowboy Ninja Viking Delayed Indefinitely”

Priyanka signed the film after walking out of Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat, 10 days before her portion of the shoot was to begin. Despite this latest setback with Universal, Pratt is set to reprise his role as Owen Grady in the studio's upcoming Jurassic World 3.

Universal Pictures has announced they have indefinitely delayed Chris Pratt's Cowboy Ninja Viking. Still listed as being in "active development", there's no word yet on if and when the adaptation will get off the ground again - or even what caused the problem in the first place.

The Hollywood trade reports that the film has been delayed and removed from its previously projected June 28, 2019 release date in order to retool the film and avoid rushing it to theaters.

The film version of Cowboy Ninja Viking features a screenplay originally written by Zombieland and Deadpool scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, which was rewritten by Craig Mazin (The Hangover Part II, Identity Thief). She remains attached to direct, just as Pratt remains attached to play Duncan, a new kind of assassin who manifests the toughest skills of three different personas - a cowboy, a ninja and a viking. The project is based on the Image Comics graphic novel by by AJ Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo. The movie is being looked at as a potential franchise in this time of prequels and sequels.

According to Variety, star Pratt and director Michelle MacLaren are still on board the film, which will reportedly be given a new release date.

Cowboy Ninja Viking may still get underway before the end of the year, but it's unlikely that we'll the movie anytime next year.

Are you sad that Cowboy Ninja Viking is experiencing a bit of a delay?
