Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the writing duo behind
, have been tapped by Disney to write the script for the awesomely titled
Cowboy Ninja Viking
The movie will be based on a graphic novel by AJ Lieberman and Riley Rossmo, which was published last year.
It's got one hell of a premise, with the title character being a multiple personality disorder patient who's trained with three sets of skills, and three personas, to become the ultimate assassin.
Wernick and Reese used to work in TV production, but their Zombieland script put them among the most sought-after writers in Hollywood.
They've since been set to work on the script for the
spin-off, and rumour has also linked them to a
sequel, and their own sci-fi project
Earth Vs Moon
Expect to hears rumours about potential directors and stars once Wernick and Reese hand the completed script in.
