COWBOY NINJA VIKING:  Chris Pratt's Next Comic Book Movie To Be Directed By Michelle MacLaren

Game of Thrones alumnus Michelle MacLaren will direct Chris Pratt's other comic book movie, an adaptation of Image Comics' Cowboy Ninja Viking that's currently set for release in June 2019.

When we last reported on Chris Pratt's Cowboy Ninja Viking, Universal had set the Image Comics adaptation for a June 28, 2019, release date.  This report came back in August 2017 and the project still was without a director.  Well, four months later, Game of Thrones director Michelle MacLaren has been hired to helm the project.

Craig Mazin wrote the most recent draft of the script after the initial screenplay was penned by Deadpool duo  Paul Wernick and Everett David Reese. 

Universal is also the home of Pratt's other tentpole franchise, Jurassic World.

Unless Cowboy Ninja Viking is delayed, it will compete against an Untitled Men in Black spinoff [06/14],  Toy Story 4 [6/21] and the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel [07/05]. Do you like the film's chances going against such heavyweight franchises?

The American cowboy, the ninja, and the Viking form a triumvirate of toughness seldom equaled in world-to say nothing of pop culture-history. Each is superbad in his own right, but what about when the most deadly attributes of each can be found in one man? Duncan is such a man, the result of a secret government program to create soldiers for the war on terror. This experimental regimen conscripts people suffering from multiple personality disorder and turns them into "triplets," highly lethal operatives possessing three distinct personalities drawing from warrior/tough guy archetypes.
