Collider revealed a story that Chris Pratt (Guardians of The Galaxy, Jurassic World, Zero Dark Thirty) would be taking the lead role in Universal's adaptation of the comic book Cowboy Ninja Viking. An assassin with multiple personality disorder gives him the abilities of a cowboy, ninja and viking. The concept seems equally as insane as Fox's X-Men spin-off Deadpool, which shouldn't surprise us that the same screenwriters are working on both films. Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the script, who are best known for writing/creating Zombieland. The project had Marc Forester (World War Z, Quantum of Solace) attached to direct, but Pratt confirms that it's without a director currently.
Pratt responded via Twitter to the rumor, by actually confirming it. Also, putting it out to Twitter who should direct it. Honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer tackle another Reese/Wenick script. It was revealed recently that Pratt passed on Sony's Uncharted film, and this could be a big reason for that.
“@jbkelly80: @prattprattpratt pic.twitter.com/lNR1NYxT56” YES! But who is our director? That is the question. Who do u think it should be?
