The Lone Ranger: First Look

Posted by Grey Saturday, March 10, 2012

Have your first look at Gore Verbinski's 2013 film adaptation of The Lone Ranger with the first image of Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp as respectively, The Lone Ranger and Tonto.

Having long languished in development hell, the path to production for the live-action film adaptation of The Lone Ranger has been unusually rocky and well-documented at every turns. Now that director Gore Verbinski's take has officially overcame the latest hurdle due to budget concerns, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has deemed fit to unveil the first image from the film via his Twitter account.

With no further ado, brace yourself for the bold new iteration of Tonto, as portrayed by the impeccable Johnny Depp and an unsurprisingly classic take on The Lone Ranger himself by Armie Hammer, who is obviously not the focus here.

With Verbinski and Depp continuing their successful collaboration since working on the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy and the successful animation feature film, Rango, we are quite certain that the focus is squarely on Tonto this time round with Depp's unique charisma tapped on for the role of the much-abused yet celebrated iconic sidekick.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

“The Lone Ranger” is 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 (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie 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.

Apart from Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, The Lone Ranger also boast a strong cast of veteran actors like Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter. The film is currently scheduled for an open date on May 31st, 2013.

In closing, let's take a look at the classic team-up of The Lone Ranger and Tonto in the original TV series that ran from the 40s to the 50s.
