This image landed online, once again featuring Johnny Depp in major make-up mugging for the camera. That handsome fellow in the black domino mask is the man behind the Winklevoss twins (Armie Hammer) and J. Edgar’s gay lover. Disney has been trying with mixed success to get this off the ground since early 2008 (or perhaps longer…) and have announced delays, cancellations and re-starts in that time. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and (Academy Award Winning) director Gore Verbinski are behind the camera. Also, noteworthy is that this marks Depp’s fifth collaboration with his Pirates of the Caribbean and Rango director.
The first image and the May/June 2013 release date confirm that a Big budget The Lone Ranger is on his way with a super-star Tonto. Are you in love with this property? Happy with that image? Looking forward to another Johnny Depp with dredds character?
