We were all excited for Priyanka signing yet another Hollywood project, and this time with Chris Pratt. But it looks like Priyanka‘s fans will have to wait for this project due to the delay. Her Hollywood flick ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’, alongside Chris Patt, will not be released next summer. Universal Pictures has taken Cowboy Ninja Viking off its schedule and undated the movie, which was previously set to release on June 28, 2019, reports variety.com.
Universal Pictures delayed the film, saying that it remains in active development and will be dated down the line “to accommodate production scheduling.” The movie was slated to slated to open on June 28, 2019, confirmed The Hollywood Reporter.
Collider’s report also states that “the studio wasn’t eager to rush to meet that release date” because “it has franchise hopes for the property”. Universal was reportedly in “discussions with potential supporting cast” before it decided to halt pre-production.
Cowboy Ninja Viking is based on the Image Comics graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo. It was adapted by Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) and Ryan Engle (The Commuter). Craig Mazin wrote an earlier draft of the screenplay with an original version by Paul Wernick and Everett David Reese.
