New Pictures From 'The Lone Ranger' Shows Johnny Depp As Tonto

Johnny Depp has another movie coming up and it's an adaptation of the classic series The Lone Ranger.  He's starring in another movie based on a TV show called Dark Shadows and his character Barnabas Collins is no where near as weird looking as his Tonto.  These pictures also show Armie Hammer who plays the title character The Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp meeting up with some Native Americans.  The film is being shot in Navajo Nation land.  Depp met with Navajo Nation elders Ben Shelley and Rex Lee Jim, alongside co-star Armie Hammer.

From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski comes Disney/Bruckheimer Films’ THE LONE RANGER. Tonto (Johnny Depp), a spirit warrior on a personal quest, joins forces in a fight for justice with John Reid (Armie Hammer), a lawman who has become a masked avenger.

 Talking to Entertainment Tonight Shelley said:

"It was a great honour and privilege to meet Johnny Depp and filmmaker Jerry Bruckheimer. We are honoured the movie is being filmed here on the Navajo Nation. The Navajo Nation has beautiful landscape and we are glad it is being shared through filmmaking."

The Lone Ranger also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson,William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, Ruth Wilson, James Frain, James Badge Dale, and directed by Gore Verbinski.  The film is scheduled to ride into the sunset May 31, 2013.
