Just a few days ago, it was confirmed that Priyanka Chopra quit the Salman Khan-starrer Bharat just in “the Nick of time” amidst reports of her engagement to beau Nick Jonas. Now, it has been revealed that Priyanka has signed on to play the Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt’s love interest in the upcoming Hollywood flick.
Everyone’s favourite desi girl has taken the world by storm since her first project in the West, Quantico, which was recently cancelled by ABC after enjoying a three-season-run on the channel. Details of Priyanka’s character in the Chris Pratt-starrer are yet to be revealed but she will definitely be playing a leading role in the film.
Cowboy Ninja Viking is the feature-film-directorial debut of Michelle MacLaren (of Game of Thrones fame) and the screenplay is written by Craig Mazin, Dan Mazeau, David Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Engle. It is set to be one of Universal’s big budget releases of next year.
The film is based on the Image Comics graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo. The story centers on Dr. Sebastian Ghislain, a brilliant psychotherapist who is tasked with creating a counter-intelligence unit. He treats patients with Multiple Personality Disorders and creates ‘Triplets’ with “an ability to manifest the deadliest attributes of the three titular personas”. When things go awry, Chris Pratt’s character, a ruthless and deadly Triplet called ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’, is tasked with saving the world. The film has been in development since 2014 but will finally be released on 28th June, 2019.
