Disney gets ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’

Company nabs feature rights to popular comic book

Disney’s looking for a triple threat, purchasing feature rights to comic book “Cowboy Ninja Viking” with Mark Gordon and Management 360 combining to produce through their joint venture MG/360.

The writing team of Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (“Zombieland”) will write the film as well as produce. Management 360’s Ben Forkner and Guymon Casady will also produce along with Mark Gordon and The Mark Gordon Co.’s Bryan Zuriff.

MG/360 was formed earlier this year by Gordon and Management 360 to develop and produce projects by taking advantage of Gordon’s extensive experience as a producer and Management’s 360 talent roster.

Image Comics has been publishing the Cowboy Ninja Viking series through its Shadowline imprint.

The Cowboy Ninja Viking character in the series is the birth child of Doctor Sebastian Ghislain, a psychotherapist who recruits Multiple Personality Disorder patients to create a unit of counter-intelligence agents called the Triplets. Problems arise when the Triplets become out of control assassins — leading to the deadliest Triplet of them all, Cowboy Ninja Viking, being called in to take down his own brethren.

Gordon’s credits include “Saving Private Ryan,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” “2012,” “The Messenger,” “The Painted Veil,” “The Patriot,” “Speed” and “Wonder Boys.” Upcoming films include “The Details,” starring Tobey MacGuire and Laura Linney; “Source Code,” starring Jake Gyllenhaall, Michelle Monaghan and Vera Farmiga; and Sony’s Richard Pryor biopic, with Bill Condon directing and Marlon Wayans attached to star.

Gordon also exec produces ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice,” CBS’s “Criminal Minds” and Lifetime’s “Army Wives.”
