First Look: 'The Lone Ranger' with Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp
With Disney's sci-fi epic John Carter hitting theaters tomorrow, their marketing machine is in full swing with new images of Dark Shadows (while plenty of images have hit recently, we're waiting for a trailer to hit sometime soon) and now, with production recently underway, Jerry Bruckheimer (noticed on Twitter by ComingSoon) has unveiled the first official look at Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as his trusty sidekick Tonto. Really Depp just looks like Captain Jack Sparrow as a grumpy Native American, but Hammer seems to be quite a dashing hero. Maybe we'll get a brief teaser soon? Image below!
Here's our first look at Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger from Jerry Bruckheimer's Twitter:
The Lone Ranger is directed by Pirates of the Caribbean franchise helmer Gore Verbinski and written by Ted Elliot, Terry Rossio and Justin Haythe. 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. The film arrives on May 31st, 2013.
