Cowboy Ninja Viking to get John Wick directors?

My god, Chris Pratt is everywhere. After being in the highly successful Guardians of the Galaxy film, you’ll be able to see him in the upcoming Jurassic World film. If that’s not enough, he’s rumored to be in the running to play Indiana Jones for Disney. However, one of his next projects before that will probably have him be an agent with the skills of a Cowboy, Ninja, and Viking.

According to Variety, Universal Pictures is looking at David Leitch and Chad Stahelski (co-directors for John Wick) to co-direct. Pratt has met the directors and has given the okay for them to direct. Now the ball is on Leitch and Stahelski’s court.

Cowboy Ninja Viking is based on the graphic novel by writer A.J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo. It follows a man with multiple personality disorder who undergoes training to become a deadly assassin (these assassins are called Triplets). As you can guess, his skills are that of a cowboy, ninja and viking.

Working on the script are Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Zombieland, Deadpool).

If you haven’t seen John Wick yet, I suggest you do. It’s one of the better recent R-rated action flicks out there.
