RE: The Lone Ranger
L: Bad Ash I think they should've pushed the boat out and gone for the full on Al Jolson look! :D] I'm just hoping that Depp will do a "big heap wampum, firewater, HOW!" performance and we can finally but to bed the lie that he's a good actor.  More

RE: The Lone Ranger
nger picnly just seen this image (I know behind the times again) and I did wonder at the time of hearing that Depp had been cast as Tonto how they would approach the "browning up"... Now I know that to avoid accusations of racism they've decide to make Depp look like some dude from a Norwegian death metal band! Quite frankly he looks bloody ridiculous.  More

RE: The Lone Ranger
What I don't understand is how this film is costing so much and why it's going to contain supernatural elements like werewolves? I was hoping for a film more akin in tone and feel to The Mask of Zorro, which was a good old fashioned 'Western' that was semi-serious but with a wink in its eye.  More

RE: The Lone Ranger
Uh oh. The Lone Ranger himself has been busted for having a pitiful amount of drugs on him. ties say Hollywood actor Armie Hammer was arrested at a border patrol checkpoint in West Texas after a drug sniffing dog discovered marijuana in his car. The 25-year-old, who starred with Leonardo DiCaprio in "J. Edgar," spent about a day in jail before paying a $1,000 bond. Arrest records show 0.02 ounces of marijuana, three medicinal marijuana cookies and one brownierrested Nov. 20 in Sier More

RE: Newell To Direct Lone Ranger
]well is in talks to direct Walt Disney Pictures' The Lone Rangerts Production Weekly.The Lone Ranger's origin story begins with a group of Texas Rangers chasing down a gang of outlaws led by Butch Cavendish. The gang ambushes the Rangers, seemingly killing them all. One survivor is found, however, by an American Indian named Tonto (Johnny Depp), who nurses him back to health. The Ranger, donning a mask and riding a white stallion named Silver, teams up with Tonto to bring the unscrupulous gang More

RE: The Lone Ranger
I think it's very interesting about Johnny Depp being Tonto... I know he's meant to be part Native American somewhere in his family tree but.... it should be interesting. Very curious to see if the current "George Cloony is the Lone Ranger" rumour pans out.   Either way, I'm expecting this to be another Bruckheimer smash and won't be suprised if it completely resurrects the Western genre.   Also, is it true the Lone Ranger is the Green Hornet's great granfather? I seem to reme More
