Chris Pratt and Priyanka Chopra were set to star, with Game of Thrones and Westworld director Michelle MacLaren helming the story about a new type of assassin who manifests the toughest skills of three different personas - that of cowboy, ninja and viking.

Something's very wrong with Cowboy Ninja Viking. This meant shooting would need to start soon.
While Priyanka Chopra walked out of Salman Khan's "Bharat", there have been multiple reports of PeeCee reportedly being a part of a Hollywood project. The movie has gone through several drafts, including an original draft from 'Deadpool" writers Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick, with the most recent draft by "Rampage" scribe Ryan Engle and "Wrath Of The Titans' writer Dan Mazeau - so it's clear that they're content not to rush it simply to make a release date. Should the project get off the ground in the future, Chopra would likely be the first choice for the role, though her involvement would all depend on her schedule aligning with a new production schedule. Pratt is still producing the project with Michael De Luca, Mark Gordon and Entertainment 360, and Universal is expected to re-date the project at a later time.
Even with this setback, Cowboy Ninja Viking reportedly remains in active development at Universal, with the goal of making the film into a franchise. But turns out that will have to wait because the movie has been delayed indefinitely.
