The Lone Ranger's Fate To Be Decided This Week!

lone ranger decision this week

Do the right thing, Disney!

To recap, last month The Lone Ranger got the axe due to budgetary issues AND because of Cowboys & Aliens' lackluster success.

Then, director Gore Verbinski tried to keep the movie alive by cutting the budget, and star Johnny Depp even said he'd be willing to fund the movie himself…but only with Verbinski onboard.

Now, we're hearing that Disney execs will be meeting Gore and producer Jerry Bruckheimer this week to make a decision on the future of the film.

We truly hope that Disney comes to their senses and gives this project the O-K. After everything that Johnny did for them with Alice in Wonderland, the LEAST they could do is let him have his passion pic!

In return, we're sure he'll give them sixteen or seventeen more Pirates flicks. Ha!

Do U think Disney will say YES to The Lone Ranger? Or will the project officially die this week???

    HE IS SO SEXYYYYY

    Ok ya thick idiot. im sure you have been going on and on about originality in hollywood. This is a remake of a TV show. Not original at all.



  3. 3

    Sure they'll give the OK. Holly wood is fueled by $$$$ and Johnny is a money maker for them. Big time. I don't know why it got stalled in the first place. What was the issue? Johnny Depp could pass gas for ten minutes and call it a movie, and it would make $$$.

    It's going to be horrible, borderline offensive, disaster if it does. Tonto should be played by an actual native american. I think the world owes the native americans that much.
    And don't wheel out the 'oooh but johnny depps great grandmother might have been a little native american' crap - funny how that only came out when he started this Lone Ranger nonsense. And is totally unverifiable.

    According to the various biographies written about Johnny Depp, he does have native American blood - on both sides of his family. And that was known a long time before The Lone Ranger was even thought of.
    Will Disney go ahead with this movie? If they've got any sense, they will - Depp is aurguably the biggest star in the world at the moment, and they shouldn't be playing 'chicken' with him. He has the courage of his convictions, and won't think twice about walking away from Disney if he feels they are being unreasonable or unfair.
    I love the man's ethics - we could all learn from him.
