Universal's Chris Pratt-led adaptation of A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo's Cowboy Ninja Viking has been pulled from the studio's release schedule, according to Variety. The film was expected to be a summer tentpole for Universal, which had dated it for June 28, 2019, though sources say the studio wasn't eager to rush to meet that release date, given that it has franchise hopes for the property.
According to Variety, star Pratt and director Michelle MacLaren are still on board the film, which will reportedly be given a new 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.
