Details have been slim on what we can expect from the big screen adaptation of ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking‘ but I’m sure we’ll be hearing more as Priyanka Chopra (‘Quantico’,’Baywatch’) has just been cast as the female lead for the film! She’ll be starring opposite ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star Chris Pratt as his love interest. The movie will be directed by Michelle MacLaren (‘Game of Thrones’) off a screenplay by Dan Mazeau, Ryan Engle, Craig Mazin, Paul Wernick, and David Reese.
We do know that the story will somewhat follow the comic produced by Image Comics and created by A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo. In it, psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain creates a counter-intelligence unit that produces agents out of those who have multiple personalities. Pratt will be one of these agents named Duncan who shares the personalities, abilities, and fighting styles of either a cowboy, a ninja, or a Viking depending on who is in control at any given time. His mission is to go out and stop the agents who have gone rogue.
Chopra will likely be playing Sara Nix or a version of her in the film. She is Dr. Ghislain’s assistant who Duncan is attracted to. Unknown to her or anyone else in the program she has multiple personalities which can be turned on and off though they’ve yet to be revealed and only hinted at due to being part of a shadow program within this program. I suspect that this won’t even be hinted at in the film unless they plan on making multiple movies out of the property.
