One of the strangest titles to pop up in a long time, The Lone Ranger is getting a reboot courtesy of Walt Disney Pictures and although I was never one to hop on silver and ride off into the sunset, this reboot looks like it might just be worth the money.
Starring Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as his faithful Indian sidekick, it seems no expense has been spared on it's leading men. Walt Disney Pictures have now released yet another international one sheet for the film and it looks down right gritty... very Un-Disney... perhaps Avengers Assemble has changed the way the studio looks at its film enterprises.
From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” 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.
Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) and man of the law John Reid (Armie Hammer) are opposites brought together by fate and must join forces to battle greed and corruption.
The Lone Ranger comes to UK Cinemas on August 9th 2013 and to the US on July 3rd 2013.
