After Z Forster Takes On Cowboy Ninja Viking

February 29, 2012

Marc Forster (“Quantum of Solace,” “Monster’s Ball“) will direct a film adaptation of A. J. Lieberman‘s comics “Cowboy Ninja Viking” says Deadline.

Zombieland” writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese wrote an adapted screenplay for Disney which the suits deemed ‘too edgy’. 

Universal Pictures has now acquired that script and hopes it will be a potential franchise launcher for them.

The story deals with a secret government program to turn schizophrenics into assassins with our protagonist scoring the skill sets of a cowboy, a ninja and a viking. When the program went awry in Iraq, he escapes and uses his skills to track down the billionaire who masterminded the program.
Wernick, Reese, Guymon Casady, Ben Forkner, Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff will produce the pic.

Production kicks off later this year once Forster completes his work on the Brad Pitt-led “World War Z
