lone ranger gets a release date

Lone Ranger/Johnny Depp fans can finally sleep easy at night!

Earlier this week, we heard that Disney was meeting with Johnny, director Gore Verbinski, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer to discuss The Lone Ranger for like the millionth time!

Looks like the meeting went well, because the movie has officially been given a May 21, 2013 release date!

Of course, everybody has been forced to cut their fees AND the budget has been reduced from $250 million to $215 mill, but at least everything’s confirmed and they can finally move forward with the movie.

Here’s what Disney had to say about The Lone Ranger in a statement:

“Johnny Depp, Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski are such a talented combination and we’re thrilled to get back to work with them on The Lone Ranger, an original and exciting new Disney adventure.”

We wish everyone the best of luck with this one, and we’ll make sure to keep ya updated on all things Ranger!

Are U excited that The Lone Ranger is definitely going to happen? Do U think it will be a huge success???
