The Schizo Hero

Once he is done wrangling the...uh...critters of Jurassic World, Chris Pratt is going to play a Cowboy Ninja Viking.

A what?

See, Hollywood’s latest It Man has signed on to star in the forthcoming adaptation of the A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo graphic novel, presumably as Duncan, the titular hero whose multiple personality disorder is weaponized. Meaning he can be three different assassins in one.

In the novel, Duncan hunts down some of his other “triplets,” who have gone rogue, but the movie reportedly will see him tracking down the billionaire who masterminded the experimental program that turned him into a killing machine.

The search for a director is ongoing for this one, and, more importantly, it is not yet clear whether Pratt will play the Cowboy, the Ninja, and the Viking (which he should). Evidently, the first draft of the script calls for three different actors for each part. But this sounds like it could be fun.
