Not Without My Director! Johnny Depp Won't Do Lone Ranger If Gore Verbinski Isn't Onboard

johnny depp wont do lone ranger without gore verbinski

Gotta love that loyalty! Yet another reason why Johnny is amazing!

To recap, last month Disney axed The Lone Ranger because of budgetary issues AND because of Cowboys & Aliens lackluster success.

Then, we heard that director Gore Verbinski was fighting to keep the movie alive by cutting the budget.

THEN, we heard that Johnny Depp would be willing to use his own money to make The Lone Ranger work if necessary.

NOW, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski are proposing a new budget "in the $215M range." Hopefully Disney will accept this, because as much as Johnny wants this movie to get made, he refuses to do it without Gore.

Do U think Disney should accept a $215 million Lone Ranger budget? Do U think the movie will be a success if it gets made?

    So sick of smelly Johnny Depp. Give others a chance.

    Well, boston61 (or should that be sxy??) you are in a very tiny minority. Johnny Depp is currently the biggest box office draw in the world, and if he wants Verbinski on board, my money is on Verbinski being on board. Mr. Depp is a very shrewd - and very bold - man.
