Disney have just released the eight more pictures of the movie version of the action-adventure classic tv series The Lone Ranger.

As we mentioned back in March when the first picture was released the original western series ran from 1949 to 1957 and was well known throughout the world. The Lone Ranger in this movie is played by Armie Hammer but the really interesting casting is Tonto who is pleyed by Johnny Depp.

In an interview with the man behind this film, Jerry Bruckheimer, he was asked what kind of movie this would be. He said, “I think it’ll have its own tone. It’s going to have a whole different feel to it than what we’ve done in the past, but it’ll be special because Johnny is in it. He’s got a real interesting take on the character of Tonto.” You can find feature of the interview here.
