We've got a couple new photos from the set of Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger at Johnny Depp as Tonto, and another image of some other Texas Ranger in the film, not sure who it is. As a fan of westerns, I'm excited about this movie, but I have no idea what to expect from a western that has a budget of $216 million dollars. This has got to end up being one of the greatest westerns ever made... right? I guess we'll eventually find out, it would be a shame if the movie bombed at the box-office. No western film has ever broken the $200 million dollar barrier. Will The Lone Ranger be the first to do it? Check out the new set photos below.
Here's the Synopsis:
Left for dead in an ambush with five other Texas Rangers, lawman John Reid (Armie Hammer) survives and is nursed back to health by an Indian scout named Tonto (Johnny Depp). He then dons a mask to avenge the murders of his comrades and to foil evildoers, never accepting payment for his services. His gratis vigilantism is made possible by the silver mine he inherits from his slain brothers - the same mine that affords him his endless supply of trademark silver bullets.
The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter.
