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

Chris Pratt's 'Cowboy Ninja Viking' Movie Delayed Indefinitely

Unfortunately, Chris Pratt and Priyanka Chopra's upcoming film, Cowboys Ninja Vikings, has been removed by Universal Pictures from its release calendar.

The film, based on a popular graphic novel, was set to be released on June 28, 2019.


With the film meant to get underway in September, it's hard to speculate what exactly has caused the production delay and the loss of release date, and what else about it needs to be developed. The program then transforms Duncan into an assassin/super-soldier, who utilizes the skills from his three personas - a cowboy, a ninja, and a viking. The film will be directed by Michelle Maclaren, who has also helmed a few episodes of hit HBO series, Game of Thrones.

Ever since she has walked out of Bharat, Priyanka Chopra is constantly in the news. 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.


Chris Pratt isn't having much luck lately.

It looks like Cowboy Ninja Viking might not have the best luck getting to the big screen. Yes, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has turned a huge profit for Universal, but the sequel will still come in about $400 million below the first film, and let's not forget that Pratt's expensive sci-fi movie Passengers, which paired him with a strong box office draw in Jennifer Lawrence, barely turned a profit. 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.


"Initially Riley [Rossmo] wanted to do something with a Dystopian near-future setting, "Lieberman said of writing the Cowboy Ninja Viking comics".
