Johnny Depp The Lone Ranger
Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted this photo this morning of Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the masked man, along with the intro “Tonto and The Lone Ranger Ride Again!” Disney’s Gore Verbinski-directed The Lone Ranger began production February 13 after months of off-again on-again drama over the project’s budget; the studio had pulled the plug altogether in August before reviving it after Bruckheimer and Verbinski were able to get the budget down into the $215 million range. The movie is set for a May 31, 2013 release.
