Marc Forster will direct the adaptation of Cowboy Ninja Viking

3 years agoby:

We haven't had any news on the adaptation of COWBOY NINJA VIKING since late 2010. Now the project finally has a director.

Universal has hired Marc Forster (MONSTER'S BALL) to helm the adaptation of the Image Comics graphic novel by AJ Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo. The script comes from ZOMBIELAND writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. My better half has informed me that the comic was actually very good.

Here are the story details:: "The title character comes from a secret government program to turn schizophrenics into assassins. The protagonist comes through the program with the skill sets of a cowboy, ninja and a viking. While most of the patients involved in the program are sent back to insane asylum after the program went awry in Iraq, he escapes and uses his skills to track down the billionaire who masterminded the program."

Forster will start on this after WORLD WAR Z is complete.

The comic was pretty great albeit maybe too silly at times.

Bah...

Great, another potentially awesome movie thats going to be wrecked by Fosters style, i think this would be the fourth in the row? Yeah, i havent seen "World War Z" yet but i have a strong feeling it'll disappoint.

People are always surprised when Forster is chosen to direct an action and or sci-fi film, but look at the dude's resume. Quantum of Solace, Machine Gun Preacher, World War Z; the dude is officially an action movie director, even if the jury is out on his qualifications.

I hope they also get to make the equally exciting, Bus Driver Ninja Dental Hygienist.

i'm pretty excited about this, Forster is a weird choice as director, but the comic itself is very weird.

the "Triplets" as they are called in the book are soo strange like of course "Cowboy-Ninja-Viking", but there are some like "Sniper-Karate Master-French Chef", [link], and my favorite "Explosives Expert-WW2 Ranger-Amish Guy".

I'm pretty sure if you were trained to be an assassin and had the skills of a ninja, the cowboy and viking part is irrelevant.
