It’s August, which means Forbes is using the traditional seasonal slowdown of traffic to drop lists of who-made-the-most-money in a variety of industries. For our interest, the movies, last week saw the release of the highest paid actress list, with the financial site using their alchemy of number crunching to place Emma Stone at the top of the heap.

As it turns out, “Cowboy Ninja Viking” is just such a picture. Kicking around since at least 2010, the comic adaptation has seen various talent take a crack at it, including “Deadpool” and “Zombieland” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with Marc Forster attached to direct at one point, as were “John Wick” duo David Leitch and Chad Stahelski.

Set to the ’70s soft rock stylings of Awesome Mix Vol. 2, the sequel picks up a few months after the first film ended.
