Chris Pratt’s ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ pulled from Universal’s release schedule

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

The adaptation of the Image Comics graphic novel, starring Chris Pratt and Priyanka Chopra, has suddenly, mysteriously, been pulled from the release schedule by Universal.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio said the project remains in an active development and will be dated down the line to accommodate production scheduling. Names like Marc Forster and "John Wick" veterans David Leitch and Chad Stahelski were mooted as possible directors, however "Breaking Bad" alum Michelle MacLaren was officially locked in for the role. 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. He already has Jurassic World with Universal, which released Fallen Kingdom this summer to huge box office numbers.

He added that in the future, when Tesla reached a "phase of slower, more predictable growth", the firm could go public again. Mr Musk later brought some clarity to the situation in an email to Tesla employees that was also posted on Tesla's blog .

Priyanka signed the film after walking out of Ali Abbas Zafar's Bharat, 10 days before her portion of the shoot was to begin. The film will be produced by Pratt along with Michael De Luca Productions, Entertainment 360, and Mark Gordon under his Entertainment One banner.

After Dave Bautista publicly attacked Disney for firing James Gunn and called working without him on the third instalment in the franchise 'nauseating', Chris Pratt's next blockbuster vehicle has hit the skids. "That time some other reasons were given to us". He'll also return to voice Emmet Brickowski in The Lego Movie 2 and he has the western The Kid coming up next year. The Nightingale is reportedly due out in early 2019, so unless something miraculous happens, it looks like Cowboy Ninja Viking could be be MacLaren's second feature-length film. This news comes from Universal Pictures.
