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???
