Priyanka Chopra Joins Chris Pratt in Cowboy Ninja Viking

Priyanka has been roped in as the leading lady in the upcoming Big budget Hollywood entertainer Cowboy Ninja Vikings.

Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World franchises) will star as a new kind of assassin who manifests the toughest skills of three different personas: Cowboy, Ninja, and Viking.

The highly coveted role reportedly went to Priyanka after a chemistry test with Chris went extremely well. As per the report, the actress will play Patt's love interest in the film. Anyone can guess, why Priyanka Chopra exited the project so suddenly. The story focuses on a counter-intelligence unit formed by psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain which is made up of dissociative identity disorder patients who are trained to be agents. After days of hectic speculation as fans wondered if Salman will again reunite with his Tiger Zinda Hai co-actor Katrina Kaif, it was left to director Ali Abbas Zafar to confirm that Katrina was indeed their choice.

Bharat is an adaptation of Korean film An Ode to My Father and is being produced by Salman's brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri and Reel Life Productions.

Although Chopra's casting can be seen as a sign of increasing diversity and inclusion in Hollywood, disappointingly so far her character sounds like a generic prop for the male hero.

Universal has said that the film will release on June 28, 2019.

Michelle MacLaren - acclaimed for helming episodes of Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Westworld - will direct Cowboy Ninja Viking, which was most recently scripted by Dan Mazeau (Wrath of the Titans) and Ryan Engle (The Commuter).
