Some new set photos from director Gore Verbinski’s (Pirates of the Caribbean) take on The Lone Ranger have gone online. While they feature Johnny Depp’s stunt double instead of Depp himself, we get our first look at Tonto’s full costume and some more images of Armie Hammer as the titular masked hero. Tonto looks to have a lot going on in the waistline area, but I’m guessing all the extra pouches and pockets are necessary to hold Depp’s collection of wristbands. In all seriousness, the location work we’ve seen is pretty impressive and I’m eager to see the beautiful landscape through Verbinski’s eye.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter. The Lone Ranger opens May 31, 2013. [Update: We've removed the unofficial images.]
Here’s the synopsis for The Lone Ranger:
“The Lone Ranger” is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
