Starring as the Lone Ranger will be THE SOCIAL NETWORK and GOSSIP GIRL star Armie Hammer, and Depp will be playing his trusty sidekick, Tonto. Beyond that, the film is being made by team PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, with Gore Verbinski as director and Jerry Bruckheimer producing the film.
For those too young to remember, THE LONE RANGER was a 1950’s TV show about a masked Texas Ranger who fights injustice with his Native American companion, Tonto. The two fight wrong-doers in the old west, and the Ranger would always yell "Hi-yo, Silver! Away!" and gallop off into the desert sunset after his work is done.
The film will be released May of 2013!
