Cowboy Ninja Viking movie might have found directors

Chris Pratt’s Cowboy Ninja Viking movie moves closer to reality with directors in talks

Cowboy-Ninja-VikingWe got very excited when it was confirmed that Chris Pratt was going to star in the movie of A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo’s comic Cowboy Ninja Viking.

Now, it looks like the movie has taken another step forward as Variety reports that an offer has gone to John Wick directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski to helm the movie.

The comic is the story of “a man who suffers from multiple personality disorder and is put into a government program to be turned into a super-soldier with the attributes of a cowboy, a ninja and a viking” and it’s a ton of fun. UK audiences have until April to see the Keanu Reeves vehicle John Wick but reviews from the US indicate that it’s also a ton of fun. Fingers crossed for a good match. The site notes that Pratt was waiting for the right director before signing on to the film, and that he’s given his approval.

The script is written by Zombieland‘s Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.
