Tonto (Johnny Depp) and the Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer)
Jerry Bruckheimer, Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger (2013) – Johnny Depp as the Native American spirit warrior Tonto in directors’ Bruckheimer and Verbinski’s film version of the 1949 classic television series The Lone Ranger is finally making it way to a theater near you after many production delays and budget woes (the film currently has a 200+ million budget). In the thrilling adventure, Tonto will “recount the untold tales” of John Reid (Armie Hammer) and the events that transformed an honest law man into a legend of justice–the Lone Ranger. The film is set for release July 3, 2013.
Nearly a decade has passed since Bruckheimer’s Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl film hit theaters. Verbinski, no longer part of the Pirate’s franchise reunites with Bruckheimer to bring us what appears to be adrenaline filled feature complete with trains and horses. We can only catch a faint glimpse of Depp as Tonto–but it appears that he somewhat rescued an injured John Reid (Hammer).
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.
In the first OFFICIAL trailer for the film, we also see both Depp as Tonto; and Hammer as the masked legend The Lone Ranger on horseback, a few explosions in all it’s high-powered cinematic glory. You will also see the amazing and versatile actress Helena Bonham Carter (Fight Club, Sweeney Todd) although it isn’t clear yet what her role will be in the film. That’s enough–I already said too much.
