Universal Pictures is in early talks with “John Wick” directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski to co-direct their upcoming action film “Cowboy Ninja Viking”.
Chris Pratt, the film’s star, has reportedly met with Leitch and Stahelski and has given his stamp of approval with an offer now out to the duo.
The story is based on A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo’s graphic novel in which a man who suffers from multiple personality disorder is put into a government program to be turned into a super-soldier with the attributes of a cowboy, a ninja and a viking.
Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese penned the script and are producing alongside Mark Gordon, Guymon Casady and Ben Forkner.
