Disney Axes Johnny Depp's The Lone Ranger!

| Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyJohnny DeppSad Sad


Remember when we said that after a variety of production snags, Johnny Depp's big screen version of The Lone Ranger was in the works?

We take it back.

Disney has reportedly pulled the plug on the flick, and although there's no official reason, sources close to production claim that director Gore Verbinski and the studio bigwigs could not agree on a budget! Combine that with the lackluster success of Cowboys & Aliens, and the movie was basically screwed!

Too bad! We would have loved to see our boy get down and dirty in the old west!

Oh well! At least we still have Dark Shadows to look forward to!

    He looks like a dirty gay male hustler.

    There IS an official reason: they couldn't cut the 250 million $ budget to 200 million $.
    Read Gossip cop to have the real news.

    Balanced budgets and profit margin will play into Hollywood movies more and more as sales deteriorate. Even big stars may have to lower their asking fee accordingly if box office shrinks. It's all relative. New stars will grab more work because they're hungry.

    Re: boston61 – Lolz, nothing like the irreverent eye of experience. Can't say I disagree if one is to be completely objective. If I didn't know anything about how good an actor he is, with his looks, you could say gigolo and I might nod knowingly.

    Well Disney knows what is about his fetishes. They hired him anyway for POTC. But the parents dont know so. Who knows. But with the hanki code going for him he isnt shy about what people know or not. Google Hanki Code and then look at his pictures online. He is never without one. In his pocket hanging. Except in Cannes they would ask about it lol . His lust for underage girls Disney knows it is better to keep that underwraps. Since well you know they dont mind that one.

    You all need to get your facts straight….. Production has been halted until they agree on a budget. Of course it's going to be made are you all kidding me on this rubbish… They supposedly have an awesome script so why would they not make it, and cowboys vs. Aliens isn't a reason they "won't" make it. It did bad okay, but why would they think this movie won't so well, unless there are aliens in it then duhhh

    Disney is nuts. They should fire the projection team. The Lone Ranger, if marketed right, would make BANK>

    Johnny Depp is a solid actor and I'm sure people would have gone to see the movie because of him alone but that being said A Lone Ranger film seems kind of blah to me. I wouldn't have bothered going to see it. In fact, I'd probably have to be really bored to watch it on cable.

    Quien sabes? Who left this silver bullet, anyways?

    @sxy - Are you and boston61 the same person, or just spiteful soulmates??

    Re: HumiliatedGrape

    LOL I'm with ya. Sounds like they both need to be friends, cause at the moment-they got 0 friends, and they spend their time by saying crap on people they are jealous at. Sad.
