HOLLYWOOD – New Chris Pratt project Cowboy Ninja Viking is ‘just a random collection of words’ admitted the producer today.
Speaking EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec, a producer close to the film said:
Everything about the film is pretty random actually. I mean we’re even getting the guys who did John Wick, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, to direct it and nothing could be more random than that.
So you don’t have a story, or script?
Story!? Ha! Well, yeah originally the idea was for the film to be a sequel to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. We were brainstorming and just throwing stuff to the wall. Butcher Baker Candlestick Maker, someone said, Cannibal Pederast Belieber. And then someone said ‘Hey Cowboy Ninja Viking Pirate?’ And someone else said… I think it was me … said: ‘Lose Pirate’ and the rest is history, or the future. One of the two.
But we heard the film is based on a comic book by A.J. Lieberman and the artist Riley Rossmo, isn’t that true?
Oh we always say that when we haven’t got a script. Remember Iron Man, that was supposed to be a sequel to the Iron Giant but we just spat some stuff out and pretended it was based on a comic book. Ironically there now is a comic book. Who would have thought, huh?
Cowboy Ninja Viking will be released in 2016.
