The Lone Ranger: Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer First Look
The Lone Ranger just started shooting, and the first image of Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer (The Social Network, J. Edgar) as the lone ranger has already appeared online. Check out the image below:
With the star power of Johnny Depp, I would assume this was really written for Tonto to be the lead and Armie Hammer will play more of a supporting role. I could be wrong of course. What’s also interesting is how much Tonto looks like Jack Sparrow. Didn’t know Pirates were inspired by Indians, but there are weirder coincidences.
The Lone Ranger is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
