Never Mind Indiana Jones; Chris Pratt Will Be Our Cowboy Ninja Viking
Remember that silly People’s Choice video where Chris Pratt was reading a bajillion scripts? Super-true. I love that Bright Abbot now has his pick of Hollywoodland, and I also love that he’s not a traditional role kinda guy. You just know if he ends up playing Indiana Jones someday, our favorite professor will be a funnier, twisted up version of his old self. But, getting back to the news at hand, Pratt’s had this film project in the works for a while now, and it looks like he may have scored a couple of hot-right-now directors.
Star Lord’s heading up another comic creation; this time A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo’s Cowboy Ninja Viking, which revolves around a man with multiple personality disorder turned super-soldier-spy. Talk about making the best of a situation…
Psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain runs a counterintelligence unit that employs — shall we say — alternative methodology to channel patients into Triplets, essentially breaking their personalities down into different agents in their minds. Pratt will star as Duncan, the best of the secret group’s trained killers. I’m sure you can guess his agent personalities, but what I want to know is, does he dress the parts?
This sounds like a perfect project for Pratt, who’s reportedly met with John Wick directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, and “given his approval.” (Nice!) Variety reports Universal’s made them an offer.
