In one year, Chris Pratt has gone from a lovably goofy supporting player on a TV series to being one of the more bankable actors on the planet. So it’s no surprise that any project he lines up is going to attract some interesting names. Case in point: Universal Pictures’ upcoming feature adaptation of the wild as hell comic series Cowboy Ninja Viking is looking to John Wick directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski to bring their action know-how to the Pratt-led flick. This choice couldn’t be more Super Awesome Excellent.
Things aren’t really set in stone for anyone on Cowboy Ninja Viking just yet (except for screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese), as the directing duo are only in very early talks right now. Pratt, who has a seriously heavy load coming as far as film commitments go, wanted to wait until the film brought in the right creative mind to lead this flick. Luckily, Variety reports their sources say Pratt has met with both Leitch and Stahelski and that his happiness with them has gotten Universal to send them an offer.
