Seasoned TV director Michelle MacLaren (“Game of Thrones”) has been tapped to direct Chris Pratt in Universal’s ”Cowboy Ninja Viking”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Jennifer Yuh Nelson and Rick Famuyiwa were also competing for the helmer’s position on the movie, which is slated for a June 28, 2019 release.
“Cowboy Ninja Viking” tells of a counter-intelligence unit that uses multiple personality disorder patients to create agents known as Triplets, referring to the three personalities the killers have. When the agents become rogue hired guns, the deadliest Triplet of them all, Cowboy Ninja Viking, is called in to take down his own brethren.
The project is based on the comic of the same name and boasts a screenplay by Craig Mazin (“The Huntsman : Winter’s War”).
