Over the weekend, various outlets reported that the actor was in talks to star alongside Johnny Depp (as Tonto) in the movie. Reports of the talks, however, were premature, as Gosling’s schedule was not yet firmed up.

When's this movie supposed to come out? 2012? IMDB has it listed as 2014.

Anytime I hear "Tonto", or read "Tonto", this pops into my head:

Never believe the release dates given by Wikipedia or IMDB as they are often wrong. Bruckheimer's Lone Ranger is set for a release date of next year according to Entertainment magazine.

Arnie Hammer...?

Quote:
Gore Verbinski may have his second star to appear in The Lone Ranger opposite Johnny Depp‘s Tonto. Armie Hammer, who broke out big with The Social Network, co-starred with Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar and has been tapped for Relativity’s Snow White, is in early talks to play the ‘star’ of this new look at one of America’s big Western heroes.

Arnie Hammer is the Lone Ranger...

http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/05/1...r-johnny-depp/

Quote:
Johnny Depp has found his Lone Ranger. Armie Hammer, the 24-year-old actor who portrayed the Winklevoss twins in last year’s The Social Network, will play the masked hero in Disney’s adaptation of The Lone Ranger, according to Hammer’s rep. Depp, who has said that he’s part Cherokee or Creek Indian, had already been cast as the title character’s Native American companion Tonto. Gore Verbinski, who directed Depp in Rango and the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies, will helm the film. Jerry Bruckheimer is producing the project, which Disney could release as early as next year.

First he was the Green Hornet's father, now he is playing a part in the Lone Ranger's history...

Variety reports that Wilkinson is circling the role of “a railroad tycoon” who “plays a prominent role” in the film. It’s probably reasonable to guess that he’d be playing a villain — as Comic Book Movie notes, “You don’t see many nice tycoons in these type of movies!” Without knowing anything else about the part, I think Wilkinson seems like a solid choice. Wilkinson’s a reliably strong actor who can do bad-guy parts as well as good-guy ones, and I have no doubt he’d be able to hold his own against Depp and Hammer.

Halted!

Quote:
In a stunning development, Disney has shut down production on The Lone Ranger, the Gore Verbinski-directed period Western that was to star Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the title character. Jerry Bruckheimer is the producer and the script's by Justin Haythe. I'm told this all just happened, and Disney pulled the plug because the budget, which I've heard the filmmakers were trying to reduce from $250 million--I've heard from insider that they'd gotten down to $232 million, but whatever the number, it wasn't close to the $200 million that Disney wanted to spend. This had to be an incredibly tough call for Disney's Rich Ross and Sean Bailey, but they have several huge live action bets on the table already.

Quote:
This becomes the second major Western-themed project to bite the dust, after Universal halted a mammoth adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower. Is it coincidence that The Lone Ranger halted right after another Western, Cowboys & Aliens, proved to be a pricey disappointment for DreamWorks and Universal?

Really disappointed, I was looking forward to this.

This leads to a script review. Tonto's B story is he's pursuing a wendigo. So it's Depp vs. cannibals again. Or Indians vs. Wendigos. An old west X-File. Not sure how weird it gets.

Fees: Gore Verbinski and Jerry Bruckheimer have reportedly both cut their fees, to the tune of a $10m savings.

Quote:
The Supernatural: The “werewolves and other supernatural creatures” from the last draft have been cut.

Quote:
The current draft still has three “massive action set pieces involving trains,” including “one described as the biggest train sequence in film history.” That I can accept; trains are a huge part of western lore, and of western movie history.

And look at how that turned out. Or it could've gone the KOTCS route and just generally been criticized (personally, I never minded the aliens, but I think we have enough threads about that).

I read the March 29, 2009 script - solid, great dialogue, bookended by train sequences. I'm convinced the latter is meant to bring to mind the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at 4 Disney parks, though not in name, complete with underground downward spiral. The attraction, as you may know, is a haunted mine built on an Indian site. So while the CGI heavy coyote/wolf ghost town sequence may be dropped (the wendigo wanders and possesses packs of animals at night), the supernatural element is inseparable. If all goes well there could be a whole new batch of animatronic Johnny Depps at Disney parks next Christmas!

Probably because George W. Trendle is the creator of both Green Hornet and Lone Ranger and in the Green Hornet radio plays back in the 30s, it was revealed that the Lone Ranger was Britt Reid's great uncle.

Coincidence? Or cute in-movie reference for Trendle fans? Or maybe might make a reference if there ever is a GH2 (I wish!).

I was pretty skeptical of Tonto's look (especially compared to traditional looking Lone Ranger), but its grown on me in the last couple of days.
