TV director Michelle MacLaren (‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Westworld,’ ‘The Walking Dead’) has scored the director’s chair for ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking,’ the big screen adaptation of A.J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo’s comic book that has Chris Pratt (‘Jurassic World,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’) headlining.
Featuring a script by Craig Mazin (‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War,’ ‘The Hangover II’), the story follows a man who suffers from multiple personality disorder and is put into a government program to be turned into a super-soldier with the attributes of a cowboy, a ninja and a Viking.
According to THR, other filmmakers on the studio’s wish list included Jennifer Yuh Nelson (‘Kung Fu Panda’) and Rick Famuyiwa (‘Dope’).
In addition to starring, Pratt will produce the comic book feature alongside Mark Gordon and Michael De Luca.
