Universal has announced the release date of its Chris Pratt-starring movie Cowboy Ninja Viking.
The adaptation of AJ Lieberman and Riley Rossmo’s Image graphic novel will hit cinema screens on June 28, 2019 (via Deadline).
As well as starring in the film, Pratt is producing alongside Mark Gordon, Michael De Luca and Guymon Casady. A director is yet to be announced.
Zombieland writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese initially developed a script for Disney, which was rejected. Universal picked up the project in turnaround, and formerly had Marc Forster attached to direct.
Cowboy Ninja Viking centres around Duncan (Pratt), the subject of a counter-intelligence programme that took advantage of his Multiple Personality Disorder to create three deadly fighters in one.
He escapes and goes on the hunt for the mastermind of the project.
Earlier this week, Pratt and his wife Anna Faris announced that they’re splitting after eight years of marriage.
The Guardians of the Galaxy actor shared the news on Facebook, where he wrote: “Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating.
“We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward.
