Disney’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ Finally Moseys in to Production

The Long Ranger
Disney

The ‘Lone Ranger‘ update from Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer has finally embarked on a legitimate production journey. The film, which tells the story of John Reid (Armie Hammer) and how he became the Lone Ranger through the eyes of Native American sidekick Tonto (Johnny Depp), will come together under director Gore Verbinski, and has been gestating for just about as long as a baby elephant (go ahead and Google it, the science checks out).

Bruckheimer, Verbinski, and Depp are all veterans of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise, a veritable mountain of gold for Disney. The cast is being rounded out by Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, and, in a provocative casting move, they’ve decided to raid Tim Burton’s pantry and borrow a little Helena Bonham Carter. The film will shoot in New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado.

You can see the finished product when ‘The Lone Ranger’ gallops into theaters on May 31, 2013. Or, if you’re feeling impatient, you can tape a picture of Armie Hammer to your TV while you watch ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ instead.
