After many delays thanks to budget costs and Johnny Depp’s personal life, Disney’s remake of The Lone Ranger is now in production. The film is being shot in New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado and is being directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star as Tonto and the Lone Ranger, respectively.
Let’s just hope that there won’t any werewolves in the movie.
Synopsis – “The Lone Ranger” is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
“The Lone Ranger” is written by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio of “Pirates of the Caribbean,” Eric Aronson and Justin Haythe. The executive producers are Mike Stenson, Chad Oman, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Eric Ellenbogen and Eric McLeod.
The Lone Ranger hits theaters on May 31, 2013.
