Johnny Depp's "Lone Ranger" to Begin Shooting in February

Posted: October 13th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Johnny DeppSubmit Comment
It's been a while since Disney decided to pull the plug on the $275 million "Lone Ranger" film, that has Johnny Depp attached to play Tonto and Armie Hammer to play the title character. The studio was always interested in the film, but only if producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) figured out how to lower the budget.

Deadline has now learned that everything has been figured out and the film is scheduled to start production on February 6th, 2012. This means that the budget has been lowered closer to the $215 million mark.

Even with a lower budget, "Lone Ranger" is still a big risk for Disney, which recently stated that the film would have to gross at least $800 million to become profitable. "Cowboys and Aliens," which is a similar-themed film, was a big flop in theaters.

Begins shooting'... in more ways than one.

This budget must include the rarely reported advertising budget. Horses work for hay. Indians for Lysol. Cheap sh*t all 'round.

So what your saying Ranger is that it'll cost around 5 mil to make and the other 270 mil all goes to Depp?
Lysol lmao I almost spit out my lunch on that one.

How in the f*ck is a Sci Fi film set in the Old West like the Lone Ranger. IS this going to be more like Wild Wild West 2.0?
