Right on Olly; the man needs to be on the big screen more. Ranger would be perfect for him.

It's hard enough to re-invent pirate movies based on a Disney ride, let alone attempt to re-invent just about the worst adventure film ever made;

The Lone Ranger (1980) starred a magnificently-dubbed , instantly forgotten lump of balsa wood called something like Clinton Spilsbury. The most famous review inverted the tag line on the poster;

"FINALLY; A FILM WHERE YOU CHEER THE VILLAIN, AND BOO THE HERO".


They should leave this supurating carcass well-alone.....................

Not to be mean to the guy, coz he is an ICON who can do NO WRONG, I just wonder if they do need to go ever so slightly younger - say, late 20s/early 30s. Not sure who would fit the bill, though - I'm tempted to suggest Ben Affleck, but not sure if he's quite charming enough.

Why would you say these things? Fillion is ageless. He can also play women. And animals. And clouds.

Surely Mr Affleck is older than good old Nathan? I have no proof of this but I'm sure a jaunt to imdb can confirm either way. Fillion would get my vote but like Olly, I put him forward for most things.

Nathan Fillion for Shaft!

WHich reminds one of the hope this doesn't go Wild Wild West on us. Or Zorro to be honest. Sense of fun of first Pirates would be great though.

It may be good so long they equallise the relationship between The Lone Ranger and Tonto as other movies and tv shows about the Lone Ranger (in the 50's and 70's) I've seen on the telly, was that it was slightly racist on Tonto being very patronised and second class to the perfect white, all american hero.

if they could get Nathan Fillion as the ranger he would be in my mind perfect casting just look at the films he's been.

Fillion is only a year older than Affleck. Robert Downey Jr is starring as Iron Man in his 40's, that's hoping to become a franchise. Johnny Depp was older than Fillion when he starred as Captain Jack Sparrow. So I don't think the too old thing is an issue. I don't think any studio heads will have the good sense to see that he would be perfect for the role.  Malcolm Reynolds covered all the emotional range the Lone Ranger could require and the off beat blockbuster humour these writers bring couldn't be carried off better (if previous roles are any indication) than it would by Fillion. In a perfect world he'd get the role but studio heads being as they are I don't see it happening. We should call them stupido heads.
