Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo, ”the story revolves around a counter-intelligence unit formed by psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain, who transforms agents known as Triplets, a reference to multiple personalities. Pratt is playing a formidable agent with the fighting skills and personalities of a cowboy, a ninja,and a viking.”
Chopra, reuniting with Universal after last year’s “Baywatch”, recently starred opposite Jim Parsons and Claire Danes in “A Kid Like Jake”.
