"Cowboy Ninja Viking", which was set to go into production next month for a planned June 28, 2019 release date and had recently cast Priyanka Chopra in the lead female role, has been put on hold, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones) was set to direct the film.

The American cowboy, the ninja, and the Viking form a triumvirate of toughness seldom equaled in world-to say nothing of pop culture-history.

It's expected that MacLaren, along with star Chris Pratt, will remain attached to the project for the time being.

With the film meant to get underway in September, it's hard to speculate what exactly has caused the production delay and the loss of release date, and what else about it needs to be developed.

Ever since she has walked out of Bharat, Priyanka Chopra is constantly in the news.

The story of Cowboy Viking Ninja revolves around a counter-intelligence unit of Multiple Personality Disorder patients, who are transformed into agents known as Triplets - referring to the three different personalities inside their minds.

Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the two guys behind the Deadpool movie scripts and Zombieland, wrote the screenplay for Cowboy Ninja Viking, with newer drafts turned in by Hangover 2 and Identity Theft writer Craig Mazin.

After Dave Bautista publicly attacked Disney for firing James Gunn and called working without him on the third instalment in the franchise 'nauseating', Chris Pratt's next blockbuster vehicle has hit the skids. The actor will next be seen in Vincent D'Onofrio's western The Kid, and he also returns for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
