Chris Pratt’s ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ Eyeing Summer Shoot In Vancouver

Dec 19, 2017

It looks like Hollywood North is getting another big studio action film.

Omega Underground has learned from local sources that Universal Pictures’ Cowboy Ninja Viking feature adaptation starring Chris Pratt is now eyeing Vancouver, British Columbia as a production location and is expected to begin filming there over the summer starting in June.

The film is an adaptation of the graphic novel revolving around an assassin who manifests the toughest skills of three different personas: a cowboy, a ninja, and a Viking. 

This gives the impression that Universal will be announcing the director very soon. Pratt and studio have previously worked together on the Jurassic World films.

The city has been hosting multiple studio action films lately with Deadpool, Deadpool 2, Shane Black’s The Predator, and Drew Goddard’s shoot ’em up Bad Times At The El Royale (starring Chris Hemsworth and Jeff Bridges).

Pratt’s wife Anna Farris (separated) also shot a remake of the Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell romantic comedy Overboard there as well.

The studio recently gave Cowboy Ninja Viking the release date of June 28th, 2019.
