In question is Baywatch and Quantico star Priyanka Chopra who was revealed to be in talks to join Pratt in the film last week, however, Chopra's schedule will have to realign with the project's schedule should the studio want her on board. According to a report in Collider, Universal Studios has pulled the film from its release calendar and the production has been delayed indefinitely. Moreover, the speculations of PC walking out of Bharat' for this Hollywood project have been quite rife. Created by writer A. J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo, Cowboy Ninja Viking is an Image Comics series about secret counter-intelligence agents with multiple personality disorders.

Pratt remains attached to play Duncan, a multifaceted assassin with the ability to manifest the deadliest attributes of three distinct personas: a cowboy, a ninja, and a viking. Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Deadpool) wrote the first draft of the script, and then Craig Mazin (The Hangover Part II), Ryan Engle (Rampage), and Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) stepped in to do a rewrite.

When the film might score another release date remains to be seen, but Universal certainly seems to think it'll still get made; just not yet. Game of Thrones co-executive producer Guymon Casady has been signed up as producer, as well as Ben Forkner.

On the heels of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 plunging into chaos following the firing of writer/director James Gunn, there's more bad news for Chris Pratt. This was before he was the [Cowboy Ninja Viking] we know. The Nightingale is reportedly due out in early 2019, so unless something miraculous happens, it looks like Cowboy Ninja Viking could be be MacLaren's second feature-length film.
