Lone Ranger Trailer Released! Watch It HERE!

Johnny Depp's beautiful mug may be covered in paint throughout The Lone Ranger…but at least he's shirtless too!

Woo hoo! Ha!

We showed you the stills, but now the first trailer for Disney's next big action flick has been released and we've got it (above)!

Armie Hammer debuted the footage while talking to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. It doesn't show a whole lot, but there's plenty of action, adventure and gunfire to give us a taste of what we can expect from Tonto and his masked friend.

This calls for a celebration!

Johnny Depp has formally been taken in by the Comanche Indian tribe, a lovely group of Native Americans based in New Mexico who just LOVE the idea of Johnny playing their beloved Tonto in Lone Ranger.

LaDonna Harris, president of Americans for Indian Opportunity, explains:

The Winklevoss Twins Armie Hammer!

That's right, folks. It's been a long time coming, and now we're very pleased to announce that The Social Network's Armie Hammer has been cast alongside Johnny Depp in Disney's The Lone Ranger.

We would have been happy with Ryan Gosling as well, but we're going into this one optimistically.

We're kind of excited and curious to see how The Hammer will do as a leading man.

Good luck, Armie! Say hi to Johnny for us!

What do U think of Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger? Good casting choice? Or would U have preferred Ryan?

Johnny Depp Wants Better For Tonto In His Lone Ranger Flick

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyJohnny Depp

That's just the sort of guy he is!

Though it has been on the back-burner for awhile, Johnny Depp is still signed on to star in the Disney adaptation of the of The Lone Ranger. The role opposite Johnny remains vacant as well, though there have been some who have almost made the cut. Still, just because the film hasn't started production yet, it doesn't mean Johnny hasn't thought about it. In fact, he's given the film a great deal of consideration and the first thing he wants to change in his version is the relationship between the Lone Ranger and his trusted sidekick. He explains:

“I remember watching it as a kid, with Jay Silverheels and Clayton Moore, and going: ‘Why is the f—ing Lone Ranger telling Tonto what to do?’ I liked Tonto, even at that tender age, and knew Tonto was getting the unpleasant end of the stick here. That’s stuck with me. And when the idea came up [for the movie], I started thinking about Tonto and what could be done in my own small way try to — ‘eliminate’ isn’t possible — but reinvent the relationship, to attempt to take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans, not only in The Lone Ranger, but the way Indians were treated throughout history of cinema, and turn it on its head.”

That's a very good point, one we bet the folks at Disney were all too thrilled to hear.

The issue hits a bit close to home for Johnny as he reveals that he's actually part Native American, possibly "Cherokee or maybe Creek," derived from his great grandmother.

We're pleased to see him have a bit of pride in his heritage! That's something everyone should have! Kudos!

Too Bad! Ryan Gosling WON'T Star Alongside Johnny Depp In The Lone Ranger

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyJohnny DeppRyan Gosling

ryan gosling will not play tonto in the lone ranger

Ah well!

Last week, we were excited to hear that Ryan Gosling was the front runner to join Johnny Depp in Disney's upcoming Lone Ranger project.

We know that Ryan has a lot of other projects on the horizon, so we're not totally shocked to hear that Gosling's rep has confirmed that he will NOT star in The Lone Ranger.

Definitely understandable, although we would have LOVED to see these two sharing the big screen!!!

One day…

Who do U think they should bring on to the project, now that Ryan is out?

Johnny Depp Gives Deets On The Lone Ranger

Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny Depp

Johnny Depp will star in Disney's silver screen version of The Lone Ranger and he certainly has high hopes for the project!

He said:

“I think it’s going to be good, when we have a chance to put it up on its feet. What we’ve got so far screenplay-wise is really great, really funny.

I always felt Native Americans were badly portrayed in Hollywood films over the decades. It’s a real opportunity for me to give a salute to them. Tonto was a sidekick in all the Lone Ranger series. [This film] is a very different approach to that partnership. And a funny one I think.”

Amazing. Can't wait!
