The breaks have been put on this project a few times due to budgetary concerns, but we finally get a glimpse of Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinkski’s troubled The Lone Ranger, starring Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as his faithful partner Tonto.
I’ve always been a huge fan of The Lone Ranger. I have vivid memories of going to see The Legend of the Lone Ranger at the theater when I was 4 years old and though now I see how… problematic it is, I loved the crap out of it as a kid. When my family came to visit Los Angeles when I was 10 years old the only star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame that I took a photograph of was Clayton Moore’s. These days, I check out any Lone Ranger projects that come down the pipe and I’m always excited and hopeful.
I am excited and hopeful for this film. (And… okay, slightly apprehensive.)
Meanwhile, The Lone Ranger #10 is in stores today.
