We get it, Disney! You're skeptical about this project!
Earlier this week, we were VERY pleased to hear that Disney finally agreed to put Johnny Depp/Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger back on track after all types of budgetary issues.
Now, we're hearing new details on ways in which the studio is cutting costs all over the place on this movie.
Here's the fat that Disney's trimming off The Lone Ranger:
- Johnny Depp, Gore Verbinski, and Jerry Bruckheimer taking reduced fees
- Special Effects have been cut
- Train sequence has been cut
- Disney is asking vendors to lower costs
Wowsa! The studio COULD have a little more faith in the project!
We can only hope that the movie makes TONS OF $$$ so that Johnny and his crew can get a totally massive budget for the sequel…and then we will say "ha" to Disney!
What do U think? Will The Lone Ranger surpass the studio's expectations???
