Priyanka Chopra to Star Opposite Chris Pratt in ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’

Priyanka Chopra is in talks to join Universal’s adaptation of “Cowboy Ninja Viking” starring Chris Pratt.

The role was one of the more highly coveted in town and Chopra beat out a slew of talent after a chemistry test with Pratt went extremely well.

The film is based on the Image Comics graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo. It was adapted by Dan Mazeau (“Wrath of the Titans”) and Ryan Engle (“The Commuter”). Craig Mazin wrote an earlier draft of the screenplay with an original version by “Deadpool” writers Paul Wernick and Everett David Reese.

The novel revolves around an assassin who manifests the toughest skills of three different personas: a cowboy, a ninja, and a viking.

Entertainment 360 — the production arm of Management 360 — Mark Gordon via eOne, Michael De Luca for Michael De Luca Productions, and Pratt will produce. VP of production Sara Scott will oversee production on behalf of the studio.

The movie hits theaters on June 28, 2019.

Chopra is coming off her final season of the ABC series “Quantico” and most recently appeared in the drama “A Kid Like Jake.” She can next be seen in the New Line comedy “Isn’t It Romantic” opposite Rebel Wilson. She is repped by WME, manager Anjula Acharia and Grubman Shire & Meiselas.
