It’s finally official, Disney is moving forward with ‘The Lone Ranger’. It seems it took a week longer than expected, but Deadline reports that Disney, director Gore Verbinski, actor Johnny Depp, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have all reached an agreement behind the scenes and that the movie will now be moving forward. The movie is looking to shoot at the beginning of 2012, for a possible 2013 release. Depp is still in line to play Tonto, and Armie Hammer is set to play the Ranger, but there is no word if the actors previously cast in other supporting roles will be returning.
I’m really glad everyone involved was able to settle their differences and move forward with the movie. I love a good western, and if done right, Disney could, and most likely will, have a huge hit on their hands. This is a project I’m really looking forward to, so I can’t wait to see it.
