Gore-Verbinski-The-Lone-Ranger-interview-slice

With director Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger opening this week, Disney held a big press junket Santa Fe, New Mexico.  While I’ve done a lot of interviews, it was incredibly cool to talk to the cast and filmmakers with the beautiful New Mexico desert behind us.  If you’ve missed the trailers, the story focuses on John Reid (Armie Hammer) surviving an attack, being saved by Native American warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp), and the two teaming up to fight injustice.  As you can see in this featurette, the production went to enormous lengths to film the majority of The Lone Ranger practically, and they shot at some amazing locations all around the country.  The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Helena Bonham Carter.

During my interview with Verbinski, he talked about a particular scene he was nervous to shoot, filming on location, deleted scenes, telling the film from Tonto’s perspective, what he likes to collect, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed my interviews with Johnny Depp, William Fichtner, Armie Hammer, Ruth Wilson, or producer Jerry Bruckheimer, click the links.

Gore Verbinski:

  • I joke around about the matte paintings behind us
  • Talks about some of the real world locations they shot at
  • What does he geek out about or collect?  Talks about an old guitar Johnny Depp gave him
  • Talks about how his first cut was closer to three hours and then he cut it down
  • Was there one scene that was tough to cut
  • Did he have one scene that he was really nervous to film.  Talks about how the film came together and how they wanted to tell it from Tonto’s perspective
