It was rumored and now it’s confirmed that Armie Hammer (of THE SOCIAL NETWORK fame) will star with Johnny Depp in the upcoming film THE LONE RANGER. The film is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and will be directed by Gore Verbinski and will follow the tales of the former Texas Ranger and his sidekick Tonto, who will of course be played by Johnny Depp. Sounds like it has some serious potential, especially since three of these four made PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN quite a success. Filming should start sometime this coming fall with an expected release date in 2012.
Wow, Armie Hammer has made a ridiculously quick the rise to fame since his role in last year’s Oscar contender. He’s also attached to Clint Eastwood’s J. EDGAR, THE BROTHER’S GRIMM: SNOW WHITE and now THE LONE RANGER. You have quite an impressive agent Mr. Hammer.
