It is not unknown that Priyanka Chopra has been roped in to play the lead opposite Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt in Universal Studio’s Cowboy Ninja Viking. Apparently, Priyanka beat a number of actresses after a chemistry test with Chris went extremely well. But now it seems, we will have to wait to witness Priyanka and Chriss sizzle on the silver screen.
According to a report in a leading Hollywood website, the film has been pulled from the release calendar of the studio and the production has been delayed indefinitely. However, the film which was earlier slated to release on June 28, 2019, remains in active development.
The film is directed by Michelle McLaren of Game of Thrones fame. It is based on the graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman, illustrated by Riley Rossmo and is adapted by Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) and Ryan Engle (The Commuter). The story revolves around a counter-intelligence unit and Chris will be seen playing the role of a deadly assassin who has the fighting skills and personalities of a cowboy, a ninja, and a Viking.

Reportedly, the film was supposed to go on floors in London next month. Now with the indefinite delay, we hope that the film gets another release date soon.
Meanwhile, Priyanka was supposed to make her comeback to Bollywood after three years with Bharat opposite Salman Khan. However, she later opted out of the film and director Ali Abbas Zafar hinted at Priyanka’s impending marriage with American singer Nick Jonas as the reason. It was later speculated that the desi girl had perhaps walked out of Bharat because of the Hollywood project, which was confirmed recently by Salman Khan in an interview.
