Disney have just released the first picture of the movie version of the classic tv series The Lone Ranger.
The original western series ran from 1949 to 1957 and was well known throughout the world. Jay Silverheels played the original Tonto, here we have Johnny Depp. The Lone Ranger was originally played by Clayton Moore and in the movie by Armie Hammer. To top the movie off we have producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski as director. Should all produce something interesting at least!
From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski comes Disney/Bruckheimer Films’ The Lone Ranger. Tonto (Johnny Depp), a spirit warrior on a personal quest, joins forces in a fight for justice with John Reid (Armie Hammer), a lawman who has become a masked avenger.
The Lone Ranger will be released in May 2013.
