Cowboy Ninja Viking has stalled on the runway as Universal pulls the movie's 2019 release date.

The Hollywood trade reports that the film has been delayed and removed from its previously projected June 28, 2019 release date in order to retool the film and avoid rushing it to theaters. Should the project get off the ground in the future, Chopra would likely be the first choice for the role, though her involvement would all depend on her schedule aligning with a new production schedule. And it may no longer be positioned as a summer tentpole. Created by writer A. J. Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo, Cowboy Ninja Viking is an Image Comics series about secret counter-intelligence agents with multiple personality disorders.
