We recently posted some set photos of Johnny Depp in costume as Tonto in Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger; one of those photos featured a gently-used railroad caboose. In a new batch of set photos, that railroad car is central to a practical stunt sequence that involves Depp and the Lone Ranger himself, Armie Hammer. As a bonus, we’ve included a video that lets you see the duo in action during the stunt (sort of). While no horses were involved in the train car stunt, we do have some shots of Depp and Hammer with their respective steeds. Hit the jump to check them out. The Lone Ranger rides into theaters July 3rd, 2013.
Check out the video of the stunt sequence “in action,” followed by the stills below. It’s hard to tell from the video and images, but Depp appears to be channeling Captain Jack Sparrow. I have more faith in him than that, but we’ll see how his Tonto translates on screen. (Images and videos via CBM, Perez Hilton and johnnydepp.ru. Click over to view even more images.):
