It wasn’t long after Priyanka Chopra walked out of Salman Khan’s Bharat when she joined Chris Pratt for Cowboy Ninja. It was also speculated that her engagement with Nick Jonas is not the only reason why she exited from Ali Abbas Zafar’s film. Her Hollywood project with Chris Pratt is said to be another reason behind her exit. However, the latest update we’re getting might not be a happy one for all the PeeCee fans. According to the Collider reports, Universal Studious, producers of Cowboy Ninja Viking have removed the film from the release calendar.
This means Priyanka Chopra’s Cowboy Ninja Vikings won’t be going on floors anytime soon. It won’t be releasing on its scheduled release date in 2019. However, the film is not yet shelved, but delayed indefinitely. Reports suggest that whenever the movie goes on floors, Priyanka Chopra is going to play the female lead opposite Chris Pratt.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the rumours about the shutdown of this $65 million project surfaced around in March this year. This makes everyone curious why this project was even officially announced. The film was going to be directed by Michelle MacLaren. Dan Mazeau, Ryan Engle, Craig Mazin, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese wrote the screenplay.
Priyanka Chopra will not return to Bharat as Katrina Kaif has already stepped into her shoes. Currently, she’s working on her Shonali Bose film The Sky is Pink with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. In 2019, she will be seen in a small role in Isn’t It Romantic.
Her film The Sky is Pink is based on Aisha Chaudhary’s life who became a motivational speaker after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of 13. PeeCee will be playing Aisha’s mother while Zaira Wasim has been roped in to play Aisha. Farhan Akhtar is going to play Priyanka’s husband in the film.
