Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski to Reteam on Lone Ranger

Posted on 24 November 2010 by Christian

Deadline.com is offering up an exclusive report confirming the reuniting of Johnny Depp and Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy director Gore Verbinski on The Lone Ranger, in which Depp will portray Tonto.

One of the downsides of Depp expressing interest in so many different projects is that it creates a backlog that can years to navigate. For instance, Dark Shadows, which has been in the works for several years now, is finally getting in front of the cameras in April. Now it looks like The Lone Ranger is moving up in line.

Writes Deadline, “When we last left this project, Pirates of the Caribbean 1-3 director Gore Verbinski was getting serious about saddling up for The Lone Ranger, the Disney pic that has Jerry Bruckheimer producing with Johnny Depp playing Tonto. Now we’ve learned that Disney just locked in the helmer. Still no word on when the film will begin production or who’ll play the Lone Ranger.”
