Here's your first look at Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as Tonto in the upcoming Disney adaptation of The Lone Ranger being directed by Gore Verbinski. Both actors look great in their roles, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this movie turns out. The film has a ridiculous budget, so it better turn out to be good!
The story will be a "thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption."
The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter.
The movie will be released by Walt Disney Pictures on May 31st, 2013. What do you think of the first look photo?
