Last week it was revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt had for unspecific reasons passed on the film adaption of Uncharted. Now Collider has gotten word that the reason was because he is going to star in the graphic novel adaption of Cowboy Ninja Viking. The site goes onto say that three other actors may play the cowboy, the ninja and the viking due to Multiple Personality Disorder:
The protagonist of the graphic novel, Duncan, is a result of a counter-intelligence program made up of Multiple Personality Disorder patients who are transformed into agents known as Triplets, so-called for their three different personalities (hence the title). Duncan subsequently escapes and uses his skills to track down the billionaire who masterminded the program. We’re told that per the latest draft of the script, the three different personalities (the Cowboy, the Ninja, and the Viking) physically manifest onscreen as three different people when Duncan switches personas, but to onlookers he still just looks like Duncan (ie. Pratt). It’s possible that the film could be executed this way, with three different actors playing the protagonist’s manifestations while Pratt plays Duncan, but obviously the script and/or vision may evolve once a director comes onboard.
