The Lone Ranger is set to go into production next month and is on the verge of adding a new cast member. Deadline reports that James Badge Dale is in talks to play the older brother of the title character (played by Armie Hammer). He would play the role of Dan Reid, "an ex-ranger and hero of the Old West." Gore Verbinski is directing the film that also stars Johnny Depp, Ruth Wilson, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper, Helena Bonham Carter, and Dwight Yoakum.
What do you think of Dale being cast in this film? Are you looking forward to seeing The Lone Ranger?
