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

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

Priyanka Chopra has signed on to play the romantic interest of Chris Pratt's character in Universal Pictures' Cowboy Ninja Viking.

The production studios suggest that the film will get another release date at a later time to solve the production scheduling issue.

Despite the delay, the movie is still on track to be made, but "the studio delayed the film rather than rushing it out to make the June 28 deadline", according to Variety.

Cowboy Ninja Viking has stalled on the runway as Universal pulls the movie's 2019 release date.

While the sequel to 2015's Jurassic World, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, has performed admirably at the summer box office, actor Chris Pratt and his fellow Guardians of the Galaxy cast members have been plagued by the recent firing of writer-director James Gunn.

While Priyanka Chopra walked out of Salman Khan's "Bharat", there have been multiple reports of PeeCee reportedly being a part of a Hollywood project.

Craig Mazin wrote an earlier draft of the screenplay with an original draft by Paul Wernick and Everett David Reese. It's likely that we won't get to see the movie until sometime in 2020.

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

Pratt remains attached to play Duncan, a multifaceted assassin with the ability to manifest the deadliest attributes of three distinct personas: a cowboy, a ninja, and a viking. 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. He'll also return to voice Emmet Brickowski in The Lego Movie 2 and he has the western The Kid coming up next year.
