With director Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger opening this Wednesday, Disney held a big press junket Santa Fe, New Mexico.  While I’ve done a lot of interviews, it was incredibly cool to be talking 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 Johnny Depp, he talked about which scene he was nervous to shoot, the one location he couldn’t believe they got to film at, what he likes to collect, Wally Pfister‘s Transcendence (learn more about the film here), and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Johnny Depp:

  • I included him making comments about my t-shirt because it’s not every day you hear Johnny Depp say what you’re wearing is cool.
  • What does he collect or geek out over
  • What was the one sequence he was most nervous to shoot
  • What was the one location that he couldn’t believe they got to film at
  • Talks about making Transcendence with Wally Pfister
