A very interesting new movie project is now in the making, and if it ends up as fun as it sounds, we could be in for a treat.
It’s being reported that the writing duo behind Zombieland, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, are now working on an adaptation of the graphic novel Cowboy Ninja Viking. The graphic novel began as a mini-series, but due to an undeniable wave of positive feedback, evolved into a full ongoing series.
Cowboy Ninja Viking revolves around Dr. Sebastian Ghislain, a psychotherapist who initiates a program in which he locates people who suffer from Multiple Personality Disorder, and trains them as a counter-intelligence unit of agents known as Triplets, who possess the abilities of three very different warriors. As is the case with anyone who tries to create a stable of super soldiers, things take a turn for the worst and many of the agents become assassins, impossible to control. This is where the deadliest of all of the Triplets comes into play, as Cowboy Ninja Viking rises up to take out his fellow agents before things go too far.
Wernick and Reese are no strangers to the world of comic book adaptations; the duo recently finished writing their take on the Deadpool spinoff movie we’ve heard plenty about but haven’t yet seen much movement on.
No word yet on a timeline for when we might see Cowboy Ninja Viking.
