Some of the biggest players in the game are about to join Disney on a trail ride to take “The Lone Ranger” to the big screen. “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp will play sidekick Tonto. “The Social Network”‘s Armie Hammer who played both Winklevoss twins in the Facebook Zuckerburg biopic has snagged the leading role of the Lone Ranger. Jerry Bruckheimer will be the Producer and Gore Verbinski will Direct.
The film has no official launch date but now that “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” has wrapped, perhaps Depp and Bruckheimer can free some time in their schedules to start working on the flick.
