UPDATE!

Hot-diggidy-dang! Pratt has only gone and confirmed this report via the power of a Meme and Twitter. Observe and be as excited and confused as the child below.

For further info on this barmy sounding bit of assassin based action read on dear reader, read on. ____________________________________________________________________________________

Well established Star-Lord and soon to be dinosaur wrangler (?) Chris Pratt is apparently in talks to add yet another notch to his growing blockbuster belt, and this one will see him starring as three assassins in one for Cowboy Ninja Viking. If you’re not already sold thanks to the title alone then there’s really no point you reading anymore. Honestly, move along. Nothing to see here.

Still keen to let the insanity ensue? Oh goody. So sources spewing details to Collider have revealed that the Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World star (have you seen that new viral site by the way?) is currently in talks to take the lead in the crazy-sounding actioner adapted from the comic book of the same name. Coming from Image Comics and created by A.J. Lieberman and artist Riley

Rossmo follows the story of Duncan, a highly trained operative known as a 'Triplet' , an assassin who suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder. Armed with an itchy trigger finger and personalities of a Cowboy, a Ninja and a Viking, Duncan runs into more bother when the other Triplets go AWOL and he and his three cranium-based colleagues are forced to hunt them down.

The premise alone sounds nuttier than a squirrel’s bum egg, but one that Pratt and his comedic muscles could undoubtedly have fun with. What’s more interesting though, is that all of Duncan’s personalities will be played by different actors, appearing on screen together from time to time as our hero has work related spats with his other personalities. Unfortunately, no other names have been attached to the roles as yet, but I can’t wait to see who gets in on the fun.

For anyone else this would seem like a ballsy venture to take on, but then they probably would have felt the same about a Marvel film with a talking racoon and a tree that can only say three words. Look how that turned out.

What do you think though? Is this a sure fire hit for Pratt and his ongoing reign of cinematic supremacy? Or is this a little too mad, even for him? Voice your opinions (whether they be from a cowboy, ninja or viking) in the comments below.
