Chris Pratt’s ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ yanked from release schedule, delayed indefinitely

To make matters worse, it was revealed on Tuesday that Universal Pictures had removed Pratt's upcoming Cowboy Ninja Viking adaptation from its release schedule for reasons unknown. Collider is reporting that the comic book movie, which Universal was hoping would be a tentpole for them next summer, has been put on indefinite hold. Moreover, the speculations of PC walking out of Bharat' for this Hollywood project have been quite rife.

The story of Cowboy Viking Ninja revolves around a counter-intelligence unit of Multiple Personality Disorder patients, who are transformed into agents known as Triplets - referring to the three different personalities inside their minds. It's expected that Universal will give the movie a new release date soon.

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.

Wrath of the Titans screenwriter Dan Mazeau, along with Non-Stop writer Ryan Engle wrote the latest draft of the script. Eric Pearson (Thor: Ragnarok), Craig Mazin, and Deadpool writers Paul Wernick & Everett David Reese wrote previous drafts.

SpaceX has checked off another reusability milestone, re-flying the latest version of its Falcon 9 rocket for the first time ever. In the tiny hours of Tuesday morning, SpaceX launched an Indonesian satellite in its 15th flight this year.

The American cowboy, the ninja, and the Viking form a triumvirate of toughness seldom equaled in world-to say nothing of pop culture-history. As for Chopra, her future with the film remains unclear. Pratt will produce with Guymon Casady, Ben Forkner, Michael De Luca, Mark Gordon and Sara Scott.

Chris Pratt's next big blockbuster has been delayed indefinitely. The movie is being looked at as a potential franchise in this time of prequels and sequels. Perhaps things behind the scenes of Cowboy Ninja Viking have just been far more complicated than any of us laymen ever realized.

Cowboy Ninja Viking was originally slated set to hit theaters on June 28, 2019.
