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!
