Eight years ago, Disney announced the company had purchased the rights to make a movie version of the comic book series. Zombieland screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese were slated to write the script for the movie’s screenplay. Disney later dropped the movie, and Universal acquired the rights in 2012, with World War Z director Marc Forster attached to direct the project and writer Craig Mazin to write the script. Later, in 2014, Chris Pratt was cast as the lead in the project with the John Wick directors, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski in talks to replace Forster who reportedly left the project. Then, in early 2018, Michelle MacLaren was confirmed as the director for the film. Last month, Chris Pratt confirmed MacLaren and producers were in Berlin testing actors for the movie with production to start this July.

Cowboy Ninja Viking centers around a counter-intelligence unit of Multiple Personality Disorder patients, formed by psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain, who are trained and transformed into agents known as Triplets, referring to their three different personalities. After the unit falls apart, its various members are turned into killers. Duncan, a Triplet who channels the skills of a Cowboy, Ninja, and Viking, is sent to find and stop the rogue Triplets.
