It has been confirmed that Gore Verbinski, who has directed PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 1-3, has chosen his next project. He will direct the upcoming Disney film THE LONE RANGER and he will be partnering with Johnny Depp again. Jerry Bruckheimer is set to produce but no word on when shooting will begin or who will be cast as The Lone Ranger in the film. For those not familiar with old time radio shows, The Lone Ranger is a masked Texas Ranger who fights crime in the old west with his trusty steed Silver and his Native American friend Tonto. Johnny Depp will play Tonto.
Let the guessing begin! Who should play The Lone Ranger alongside Johnny Depp in this film? I think Liam Neeson could pull it off (The Lone Ranger always seemed older to me) or maybe Ralph Fiennes. However it goes it’s definitely a film to keep an eye on.
