The Lone Ranger Header

Having never seen the original TV show or heard any of the original radio broadcasts, I didn’t know what to expect from Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger. The film stars Johnny Depp as Native American Spirit Warrior, Tonto, who must join forces with John Reid (Armie Hammer), to battle the evil that is fueled by greed and corruption. So after all the delays, script rewrites, and reworking the budget, we finally got our first look at The Lone Ranger.

Check out the first trailer for the film here below.

A director interpreting a property that looks radically different from the original is nothing new. But for those who were worried about all the problems that affected this film, it looks like this trailer should put their nerves at ease.

‘The Lone Ranger’ Budget Inflates Back To $250 Million, Hits More Delays and Script Rewrites

The Lone Ranger

If you have been following the progress of Gore Verbinski’s adaptation of The Lone Ranger, you know of the difficulties it took for them to even get the cameras rolling. Pricey deals, a large budget, complications with the script, and big money already spent on John Carter (which didn’t end well) and Oz: The Great and Powerful – all of these things were contributing factors that led to Disney’s decision to halt the production of The Lone Ranger.

At first The Lone Ranger was budgeted at $250 million, which is quite large considering the film is a western. But once things were scaled down to $215 million – apparently CGI werewolves were taken out of the picture to reduce the budget of the film – the script was rewritten, and deals were reworked, the ball started rolling again, and production on the film finally started.

Now comes word that problems are arising once more, and the budget that was scaled down to $215, has once again inflated to what it started at in the beginning, a whooping $250 million. Also, mother nature is becoming a huge production problem. So much of a problem that production is behind schedule.

Johnny Depp Reveals The Inspiration Behind His Tonto Look In ‘The Lone Ranger’

The Lone Ranger

The release last month of the first image of Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in character from next summer’s big-budget western adventure The Lone Ranger didn’t particularly set the world on fire. One of the major question marks surrounding the troubled production was how Depp would look as the Ranger’s faithful Indian companion Tonto. In the months before the release of the first Pirates of the Caribbean, images of Depp in character as Captain Jack Sparrow led skeptics to believe the eclectic actor had gone off the deep end and the movie would be an epic bomb for Disney.

Instead Pirates was a blockbuster smash that finally made Depp a bona fide movie star and spawned a billion-dollar franchise for the Mouse House. It also established the quirky and roguish Captain Jack as the first iconic movie hero of the 21st century. Pretty soon the stylish swashbuckler would become a popular Halloween costume as well. Depp had taken an unusual approach in his ideas for the character’s look, much to the consternation of studio executives already sweating over the movie’s gargantuan (for 2002/3) budget and the nagging uncertainty of a pirate movie, much less one based on one of their famous theme park rides, but the gamble paid off handsomely.

The Lone Ranger

Now that the epic Walt Disney action adventure take on The Lone Ranger has survived that health scare and continued forward, casting has resumed.

The first to officially join Johnny Depp‘s Tonto, Arnie Hammer‘s Lone Ranger, and Helena Bonham Carter was female lead Ruth Wilson and the great Tom Wilkinson (both of which were said to be up for roles prior to the movie’s complications, but were only just confirmed recently), who’s set to play the film’s villain.

And now some smaller characters are being given faces with the report that James Frain, best known for his role as Thomas Cromwell on the hit Showtime series The Tudors, has now joined The Lone Ranger.
