Chris Pratt confirmed that he was in for the lead in the Cowboy Ninja Viking movie a while ago (here).
Based on AJ Lieberman and Riley Rossmo’s graphic novel (pic above), about a man with multiple-personality disorder who becomes a super-soldier who is a cowboy, a ninja and a viking. Yeah, mad.
Now John Wick’s David Leitch and Chad Stahelski are in talks to co-direct the movie.
Stahelski and Leitch have been second unit directors for years and now that their Keanu Reeves movie, John Wick, has been a big of a box-office shock, it has put them on the radar of several production companies.
Pratt is about to star on The Magnificent Seven and then Guardians of the Galaxy and the rumoured Indiana Jones movie, so when this will happen isn’t exactly clear. But the sooner, the better we say.
File this in the ‘coming soon’ file…
