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 Armie Hammer, he talked about a particular scene he was nervous to shoot,what he likes to collect, what it’s like to go from David Fincher to directors that shoot a lot fewer takes, and much more.  In addition, he also talked about Guy Ritchie‘s The Man From U.N.C.L.E..  Hit the jump to watch.

When last we talked about Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. adaptation, Tom Cruise was set to star as one half of the agents of the United Network Command for Law Enforcement.  It looks like Armie Hammer (The Social Network) will be playing the other half.  The original 1960s series starred Robert Vaughan and David McCallum as Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, two agents who fought against the evil organization known as T.H.R.U.S.H. using only their wits and specialized weapons and gadgets.  It looks like Cruise will be playing Solo while Hammer takes on Kuryakin.  Hit the jump for more.

As we move closer towards the release of Side Effects, which could very well be the final theatrically released film from director Steven Soderbergh, many are looking back at the multitude of great features that the filmmaker has made over the past two decades.  One of the more fascinating projects that Soderbergh was attached that didn’t come to fruition was a feature film adaptation of the 1960s spy TV series The Man from U.N.C.L.E..  The filmmaker was developing the project only just a couple of years ago, before ultimately bowing out in late 2011 over creative differences with Warner Bros.

Steve recently sat down with screenwriter Scott Z. Burns in anticipation of Soderbergh’s upcoming thriller Side Effects, and during the course of their conversation Burns talked about working with Soderbergh on The Man from U.N.C.L.E. In addition to talking about possible casting for the film, Burns went into quite a bit of detail with regards to the proposed plot of their take.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
