Film synopsis Aged Comanche Tonto (Depp) relates his days with John Reid (Hammer) and how the sole survivor of a massacre of Texas Rangers by the notorious outlaw Butch Cavendish (Fichtner) and his gang became the masked man bringing justice in the Old West. Corrupt railroad men, stampeding buffalo and a comedy horse all play their parts.

I think they should've pushed the boat out and gone for the full on Al Jolson look!
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
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"...

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
]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
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
