His next film, comicbook adaptation Cowboy Ninja Viking has now been pulled from the release schedule and placed on indefinite hold. However, with recent developments, the film that was scheduled to release on June 28, 2019, has reportedly been postponed and won't be hitting the screens next summer. Universal said it will be re-dated at a later time to accommodate production scheduling. Names like Marc Forster and "John Wick" veterans David Leitch and Chad Stahelski were mooted as possible directors, however "Breaking Bad" alum Michelle MacLaren was officially locked in for the role.

The American cowboy, the ninja, and the Viking form a triumvirate of toughness seldom equaled in world-to say nothing of pop culture-history.
