With all the drama that was made public about the making of Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” – over-inflated budgets, production shutdowns and restarts, plot points that involve CGI werewolves, oh wait nevermind, no werewolves – it’s probably not surprising that producer Jerry Bruckheimer would jump on getting some positive media coverage for the Gore Verbinski reboot of the classic long-running TV series as soon as possible. Filming is now underway in New Mexico with Armie Hammer in the title role and Johnny Depp as his faithful companion Tonto and Bruckheimer has released a highly stylized promotional image from the shoot featuring Hammer looking very serious in a very fashionable black and white ensemble and Depp… wearing face paint with a dead crow on his head. Yeah, that sounds about right.
Has Bruckheimer succeeded in alleviating your concerns about this movie? You tell us. See the full image below. “The Lone Ranger” is set for a May 31, 2013 release.
