Marc Forster will direct the adaptation of Cowboy Ninja Viking
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.
