New Images from the Set of THE LONE RANGER

     April 29, 2012


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.

    So they’re having the Lone Ranger dress in black for this movie? Weird.

    I have no interest for this movie, and I don’t know anyone else who does. I can’t believe they gave this thing a budget that high. I think it’s going to flop pretty hard.

    I just hope they retain the William Tell Overture for the credits.

    From the first photo shown with Johhny Depp in that ridiculous get up as Tonto, I could tell it will be a bomb. Maybe the costumes do not make a movie, but in this case, the Tonto costume will kill it. When are the Hollywood bigwigs going to get it into their thick heads not to screw around with tradition? Tweak the look a little, but don’t abuse it. And what’s with the crow on Depp’s head. What idiot dreamed that up? I like Johnny Depp, but he looks stupid. And since when does the Lone Ranger dress in black and why is he wearing a ranger’s badge. I don’t recall John Reid ever wearing a badge after he became the Lone Ranger in any of the previous films or the tv series. Something is definitely wrong here.Hollywood is way out on left field with this film. Better start correcting things or a flop is in the future for the Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp.

    I agree Johnny Depp is good and some Humor is ok. But sounds like they will be giving too much. Look at Johnny’s outfit! Or the Lone Ranger’s outfit! WOW didn’t Hollyweird learn from the 1981 flop? Or from the past not using Native Americans to play Native American? Johnny might have some in his blood but doesn’t have the look. Like David Carradine as a Kung Fu Master over Bruce Lee? Come on! Listen to the fans for a change! You made Speed Racer too much cartoon and didn’t take it the way the fans wanted. This high of a budget, even the name Johnny Depp wont be able to sale it! The cast couldn’t save Cowboys vs Aliens. Johnny Depp RUN! Please back off of and leave the Legend alone until you have a better plan!

    The movie is being filmed in the most beautiful parts of the West, even if the story and acting sucks, it will be a chance to renew the days of John Fords Westerns, not in context , but great Western locations!!!!!
