Gore Verbinski to direct Johnny Depp in THE LONE RANGER!?
Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is currently in talks with Disney to direct the big screen adaptation of the classic TV series The Lone Ranger! If he takes it he will once again be working withJohnny Depp who was previously cast in the role of Tonto, the lone rangers sidekick. Now, if the lone ranger had a sidekick, he would really be a lone ranger would he.
Verbinski is currently in the process of completing his CGI animated film Rango, but is looking for his next big project to start working on once he's done. The movie is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer who he's worked with on the Pirates films, and he would direct from a script written by Justin Haythe.
What do you think about Verbinski possibly taking on The Lone Ranger?
