Cowboy Ninja Viking release date announced
Universal Pictures has announced a Cowboy Ninja Viking release date! The Image Comics adaptation, starring Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World franchises), will arrive in theaters on Friday, June 28, 2019, putting it head-to-head with Paramount’s Untitled Sixth Transformers Film.
Chris Pratt stars as a new kind of assassin who manifests the toughest skills of three different personas: COWBOY NINJA VIKING. The hard-edged actioner laced with attitude is based on the Image Comics graphic novel by AJ Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo.
There is no director officially attached yet, though expect word soon. Universal had previously courted the 87eleven Action Design directing duo of David Leitch and Chad Stahelski (John Wick) to helm, but the two have since gone their separate ways and are both working on other projects right now (Deadpool 2 and John Wick 3, respectively). World War Z‘s Marc Forster was also previously attached to direct.
The film version of Cowboy Ninja Viking features a screenplay from Zombieland and Deadpool scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, which was recently overhauled by Craig Mazin (The Hangover Part II, Identity Thief). Guymon Casady, Ben Forkner and Mark Gordon are attached to produce.
