Johnny Depp Gives Deets On The Lone Ranger

| Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny Depp


Johnny Depp will star in Disney's silver screen version of The Lone Ranger and he certainly has high hopes for the project!

He said:

“I think it’s going to be good, when we have a chance to put it up on its feet. What we’ve got so far screenplay-wise is really great, really funny.

I always felt Native Americans were badly portrayed in Hollywood films over the decades. It’s a real opportunity for me to give a salute to them. Tonto was a sidekick in all the Lone Ranger series. [This film] is a very different approach to that partnership. And a funny one I think.”

Amazing. Can't wait!

    Like Natalie Portman, another actor I love and can do no wrong in my eyes : )

    Yes, Native Americans have been badly portrayed in older films. So, rather than remedy that, we'll make another movie where a Native American character is played by a white man! Sorry Johnny, love ya, but another bad idea. There are plenty of actual Native American actors who could play this just fine and give their own culture the boost it deserves.

    Re: Unbelievable! – 'a white man'. You need to do your research about Johnny Depp's background. Johnny has European ancestry BUT His great-grandmother, Minnie, was a FULL-BLOODED CHEROKEE.
    If that's not Native Indian enough for you tough taters.

    Re: Unbelievable! – *Native Indian* - I meant to say Native American Indian.
