'Lone Ranger': New Images and Official Poster Released
Disney has released a handful of images from The Lone Ranger, a film starring Johnny Depp as Tonto that will be released in 2013, as well as the movie's official poster. In this re-imagined version of the story, which started as a radio serial in the 1930s, Depp's Tonto will not be a mere sidekick to the Lone Ranger, played by Armie Hammer. "It's a dysfunctional buddy movie," director Gore Verbinski says, according to USA Today. "It's two guys who start literally and figuratively handcuffed together who end up on the same mission with completely different world views. They sort of rub off on one another. But they have plenty of disagreements." Verbinski describes Depp's Tonto, who is Comanche in this take on the tale, as "an odd-shaman, an outcast from his own tribe, who has created his own mystical world." As previously reported by ICTMN, filming took place in scenic Monument Valley over the course of the summer.
