Disney REALLY Doesn't Want To Spend A Lot Of Money On The Lone Ranger!

disney makes lone ranger budget cuts

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???

    I think it will, it's Johnny Depp!

    there has to be a train sequence in the lone ranger!

    If you are old enough to remember the Lone Ranger when it was on tv you would realize that Johnny Depp is NOT The Lone Ranger. Far from it. Just because it's Johnny Depp doesn't mean he can pull this off. This is another classic that Hollywood is going to ruin. I hope that they have many more problems and cancel the movie all together.

    Please check on Internet: Depp would be playing Tonto. Armie Hammer would play the Lone Ranger.

    Disney shouldn't be penny-pinching on this movie - Johnny Depp is the biggest star on the globe and a huge pull for cinemagoers. People have a strong belief that whatever film he's in will be good - and they're right. So people will flock to cinemas to see The Lone Ranger…I hope that after it's made a billion for Disney, Johnny will shoot them the finger and drop them like a hot potato.

    Re: anniebanannie51248 – Depp is playing Tonto NOT the Lone Ranger. How bout getting your facts straight before criticizing, you'll seem (if only a little bit) more intelligent.
