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

    You should of asked him about what he knows about Pirates 5, that maybe we do not know about it yet as like the last question !

      thought about it. But I decided to ask about Transcendence instead

      • Sean

        Oh, I see. That’s fine :) . I guess maybe next time you can ask him about Pirates 5 ?

    Hey Frosty, I love watching your interviews. Got a question for you – for these interviews, do you have any time that’s not on camera? I remember watching a lengthy one of yours with Chris Evans, and this reminded me of that. Is it all wham-bam style, or if they like you (which they obviously do), can you or do you get more time? Thanks man, all the best from Missouri.

      some are extended. but when they’re junket interviews like this one…you get between 3-5 min depending on which junket/how late it’s running. But most of the time you only get 4 min

      • Jo

        No offense, but 3-5 min is just absurd. Why even do interviews if they are that short. They fly tons of journalists out there for a 3 min interview? Ridiculous.

      • Zarles

        They’ve probably got over 100 journalists and bloggers to accommodate. What are they supposed to do, give everyone an hour?

        Maybe you should run the movie studios because you seem to know how to market films better than they do….lol.

        I think they know what they are doing..they have it down to a science at this point.

    Has Sony allowed journalists for a set visit to Paul WS Andeson´s POMPEII ??? Cuz it would be the perfect opportunity to ask Paul about the current status of RE6??

  • Polarboy

    When is Depp going to start ageing, it’s getting disturbing at this point.

    • Sean

      I don’t know. But Yeah, he does look very good for his age.

    • der

      when he starts working a 9 to 5

  • Del Horton

    The Lone Ranger… If I was in this movie…I would wear a mask or heavy make up too.

    This video player makes me want to murder small rabbits. Doesn’t work half the time. Would love to see the end of the interview, but doesn’t want to play.
