Zombieland Duo Tackle Cowboy Ninja Viking

by SuperHeroHype

Nov 7th, 2010

Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese to adapt the Image comic for Disney

The Zombieland writing duo of Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have been brought onboard to adapt the comic book series Cowboy Ninja Viking, reports Variety.

The comic book series, which launched from Image's Shadowline Comics late last year, is the brainchild of writer AJ Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo. Begun as a miniseries and soon expanded to an ongoing title, the official solicitation for the first issue is as follows:

COWBOY NINJA VIKING is the creation of Doctor Sebastian Ghislain, a psychotherapist who recruits Multiple Personality Disorder patients to produce a unit of counter-intelligence agents called Triplets. But what happens when those guys become out of control assassins? That’s when the deadliest Triplet of them all, COWBOY NINJA VIKING, is called in to take down his own brethren.

Currently on its tenth issue, Cowboy Ninja Viking is not the first comic book property for Wernick and Reese. The pair also drafted the still-unproduced Deadpool.

John Wick Directors Targeted for Cowboy Ninja Viking

SuperHeroHype

Jan 29, 2015

Following news last fall that Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt will be headlining the upcoming Image Comics adaptation Cowboy Ninja Viking, Variety is reporting that Universal Pictures is looking at signing none other than the John Wick directing duo of David Leitch and Chad Stahelski! According to the trade, Pratt himself has approved the pair and an offer is now on the table.

The original comic book series hails from A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo and centers on a counter-intelligence unit composed of agents with multiple personality disorder — known as triplets — who have been converted into assassins. Now there’s just one Triplet left to stop them: the Cowboy Ninja Viking!

Also rumored earlier this week to be in line to inherit Indiana Jones‘s iconic fedora in an upcoming franchise reboot, Pratt is currently honing one third of the required Cowboy Ninja Viking skills as the star of Pawnee public access’ “The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show” (by way of his Andy Dwyer on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” currently in its final season).

The film version of Cowboy Ninja Viking features a screenplay from Zombieland and Deadpool scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese and has Guymon Casady, Ben Forkner and Mark Gordon attached to produce.
