'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.

I still recall when the article appeared here in the ICTM where the Navajo Nation GOvernment shut down services just to get pictures with Jonny Dep and the film crew. And Indian Tribes are saying publically this 2012, they NEED federal dollars and the suport of Barack Obama? It is no wonder federal dollars are being used for 'other' interests, i.e. illegal aliens, New Orrlunns, federal housing programs, etc. than just Indian Tribes, All the more reason for indian people to hold their Indian Government accountable and responsible.
